  • Pies 'n' Thighs Manhattan
    43 Canal St., 212-431-7437, Lower East Side, Manhattan
    The name Pies 'n' Thighs doesn't tell the whole story at this darling luncheonette, a Lower East Side spin-off of the original Williamsburg location that opened in 2006 (and then closed in 2008, reopening in 2010). The pies (especially banana cream) and fried chicken thighs (as well as breasts and drumsticks), cloaked in a golden crust, are old-fashioned goodness, but the sourdough cake doughnuts and giant chocolate chip cookies are even more awesome. Just the scent of the dessert case by the entrance can induce a sugar rush. The creamy mac 'n' cheese dashed with hot sauce and the chicken cutlet nestled in a fluffy buttermilk biscuit brushed with honey butter are as satisfying as rolling over and going back to sleep on a Sunday.
