Very soon, this urban pastoral will be a memory.Photo: Mark Peterson / Redux
Set in its own cozy postindustrial hellhole, Pies-N-Thighs had one of the coolest spaces in New York. Attached to a bar under the Williamsburg bridge and blocks from any other kind of commerce or even human habitation, the place drew customers purely for the greatness of its chicken and pies, and the above-average-ness of its pulled pork. Well, the pulled pork is gone, and now, apparently, so is the space. Pies-N-Thighs will reopen in another Williamsburg location in time for summer. But owner Carolyn Bane sent us an e-mail saying tomorrow is the last meal for a while.
We’re trying to spread the word that we’re closing soon (Wednesday is our last day) in order that people can get a chicken and mac fix. Sometimes it seems like there isn’t any good news on the blogs so it is with some hesitation that I send this, but this is useful information to a lot of people we love. Rumor has it that we’re rolling out the smoker one more time. And that there will be a moon bounce. Hope to see you there - 351 Kent Ave @ South 5th St, around 8.
