Chicken Pot Pie?
Where's your favorite joint to get a hearty, savory, chicken (or other meat) pot pie? I went to Daily Grill by Union Square the other day on a rec and it was pretty darn good. The crust was deliciously thin, cripsy, and layered like a puff pastry, but only covered the top of a large, shallow rimmed soup bowl. Carrots, peas, button mushrooms, and onions were fresh and tasty. The dark meat chicken came in large chunks and was pretty tender. Overall it was quite good, although the sauce had a little sweetness which I didn't like so much and I would have liked a bottom crust. Also a little pricey -- $20 when all was said and done.
Anyway, it got me thinking about pot pies.

Liberty Cafe is known for their pot pies, both chicken and veggie. I've loved them for years. But frankly they've had issues in recent times. In January the owner passed away and it is now in new hands. Same format, with pot pies anchoring the menu. I've heard some good reports from friends and I'm hoping it is restored to its former quality and consistency. Anyone been there recently?
