good chicken pot pie

foodwhisperer Jan 28, 2009 08:55 PM

I went to Yaffa;s in tribeca , they redecorated the fancy half of the restaurant, the bar area is still the same. The chicken pot pie didnt even resemble chicken pot pie. the only reason I knew what it was , was because it was what I ordered. It had a piece of chicken breast on top of some vegetables and a spoon of pie dough on top .. technically it had some of the ingredients for chicken pot pie but it was like ordering pizza and getting a tomato, a hunk of cheese and a piece of dough,,,, Any recs for real and good chicken pot pie

    I've had really good Chicken Pot Pie at Square Meal, but it's not always on the menu.

      The chicken pot pie at Molly's is the traditional chicken pot pie and it's excellent.

        I've always been curious about the Molly's chicken pot pie but then again, I find it hard to stray away from the shepherd's pie

          I'm a shepherd's pie addict, and I've always been curious about both the chicken pot pie AND the shepherd's pie. But I can't stay away from their burgers.

            After a few years of going burger only, I finally made the jump to the sheperds pie and haven't looked back...

              Bar Americain has a really good Chicken Pot Pie, although it's made from smoked chicken, but has a nice smokey flavor.

                While this is not an exact match with your question, if youre a chicken pot pie lover its worth noting that the "Twin Hen" chicken pot pie in the frozen food section of Dean and Deluca is great.

                    Tartine in the West Village has one of the best Chicken Pot Pies in the world. and the price is downright cheap. Bring your own wine.

                    a fun and cozy place.
