Progress Reports: Pies-N-Thighs Next Month, Veselka This Year


Light is being shed on a couple of much-anticipated, long-delayed comfort-food projects today. First, the Feed taunts us with a slideshow from within Pies-N-Thighs, which closed a little over a year ago and is set to reopen early next month at 166 South 4th Street. There will, of course, be fried chicken (which will continue to be available at Roberta’s), as well as shrimp and grits, pulled pork, pies, baked goods by Buck, and a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on a housemade biscuit. Over in Manhattan, Diner’s Journal reports that Veselka Bowery, now under construction, aims to open by the end of the year with “100 seats, a fancier menu, and a hard-won liquor license,” meaning vodka and caviar.
