Years ago, I heard about the magic of Pies 'n' Thighs but that was after they had closed their original location. I had to wait another year before they landed in their current Williamsburg location. Back in the day, Pies 'n' Thighs was it. A place that specialized in fried chicken before fried chicken was cool. I mean fried chicken has always been cool but not cool like what we have now.
It's been a long time since I ate at Pies 'n' Thighs and one day I found myself passing by their new location in the Lower East Site and decided to stop in for a late lunch. I got the chicken and waffles with strawberries and cinnamon butter. Yeah, this was good... really good.
