best chicken pot pie?

I am a chicken pot pie-a-holic. I really love it and could probably eat it every night for dinner (well, if it didn't have so many calories). Anyway, I am having trouble finding good chicken pot pie in Manhattan. Last week I tried the one at Sarabeth's (which I'd heard great things about) and I thought it was terrible. Too watery. I really like the ones that are pretty thick on the inside and made with white meat. Any suggestions?

    I've had the one at Brooklyn Diner - it may be what you're looking for.

      I'll second the Brooklyn Diner. The chicken pot pie has got to be one of the best I ever had.

    2. I like the pot pie I buy at Eli's Vinegar Factory. However, they only have the crust on top.... if you're a big crust fan.

        I'll second Eli's. And whatever you get, don't buy Fairway's, it's the absolute worst I've ever had.

      2. Zabars west side is a very good one

          I agree...Zabar's is delicious!

        2. Tea & Sympathy on Greenwich Avenue in the West Village has an excellent chicken pot pie.

          I also like the one available at The Farmer's Daughter on Irving Place.
