Where do you recommend one orders Thanksgiving pies?

cherry, apple, etc? I used to live in Philadelphia, and we always ordered them from the Amish ladies. Do you have a favourite source of pies in NYC? Many thanks!

      What type of pie are you looking for? Apple, pecan, pumpkin?

          Umanoff & Parson's in Tribeca. Earned raves at every thanksgiving I brought them to, especially the chocolate pecan.

            They are no longer located in Tribeca. I believe they used to have two locations: Bronx, and Tribeca. They recently closed the Tribeca one, in anticipating of opening a store uptown, ~110th street on the East side.

              I have the same question I usually go with a Clinton St. Bakery pie, but I've been considering City Bakery this year--but I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere...is there a reason for this?

                If you're downtown, Bubby's; uptown, the cafe in Fairway (go upstairs to the 2nd floor and order a pie in the cafe/restaurant, run by Mitchel London).

                  The Little Pie Co. on W 43rd St. I dream of their sour cream walnut pies, the others are really good as well.

                    My friends who order a City Bakery Heritage Farms turkey every year swear by Wichcraft's pumpkin pie. I ordered an apple crumb one this year. $27.

                    I used to buy Little Pie Company's pies but found that the filling was a little too sweet for my taste, the pastry a little tasteless.
