Fresh baked pies cool in the window of this cheery diner where the Lower East Side and Chinatown blur together. An offshoot of the original in Williamsburg, Pies 'n' Thighs Manhattan has a similar Mayberry R.F.D. menu of fried chicken and catfish, buttermilk biscuits, doughnuts and giant cookies. Every item could win a blue ribbon at the county fair. They serve breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner, plus buckets of chicken for parties. To drink, there's sweet tea, lemonade and a short list of beer and wine.
