Best Pot Pie in Boston?

It's getting cold out there, which means I'm looking more and more for comfort food staples at area restaurants. Can anyone recommend where I can order a great pot pie? Buttery, flaky pastry toppings, quality meat, and savory sauces are a must. Thank you!

  1. Not in Boston, but if Abington is convenient, the Abington Ale House does a great chicken pot pie. Great crust, generous chicken portions and topped with mashed potatos. Or, you could get a take out at Harrows in Reading or Medford.

      I just tried Harrows for the first time last week and really enjoyed it. I got an individual pie with carrots and potatoes. It was very tasty and full of chicken. I will definitely be going back!

        while neither of these is a traditional "enclosed" pie, both New England Soup Factory and Strip-T's in Watertown make a very good "soupy" chicken pot pie served with light flaky biscuits on top.

          Harrows is our stand-by for a good winter dinner. We order the "chicken only" pie and pick it up on the way home from work. The night before we cook some carrots and potatoes. Scoop the pie over the veggies and there is a great meal. If I can sneak them in I also saute some 'shrooms.

          The newest Harrows is located at 275 Mystic Ave (Route 38) Medford MA. 02155. Their phone number is: 781-306-0410.

          1. At the risk of being hissed at, my 2 fav chicken pot pies are from Boston Chicken and ,,,KFC. I use to like Harrows but now find that there isn't any sauce just thick gloppy pasty stuff.

            1. have you tried Petsi Pies? a little light on the sauce iirc but you might find it to your liking

                I second this. I agree on the slight lack of sauce but delicious.

              2. Actually I hate to say it, but Joe's American Bar & Grill has an AWESOME pot pie
