      Unfortunately they're already sold out for Thanksgiving.

      ETA: They will have some unreserved pies on Thanksgiving first come first serve. But after people lining up from 6A from the year prior, I wouldn't bet on it unless you're an early bird.

        The Del Rio Diner on Kings Highway . Over the top rich cream pies and cakes. They will sell whole pies. Go in advance and try a few slices.

          Brancaccio's on Fort Hamilton Parkway in Windsor Terrace/Kensington has fantastic apple and pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving. Not sure if you have to pre-order.

            Just spoke to Joe at Brancaccio's. He says they'll have apple and pumpkin pies on Wednesday, but you should call ASAP and leave your name so you don't get shut out.

                Also Wednesday Greenmarket at corner of Prospect Park West/Southwest.
                Bread Alone is there (and at GAP on Saturdays). Crust is bready (maybe no surprise!) but we like it, and the fruit fillings are terrific.

                    Please tell me if Im wrong, but Im wondering how many of the pies mentioned above have buttery or flaky crusts. NY is not a pie town, and most NY bakery pies or commercial pies Ive experienced have cardboardy crusts - I guess people learn to live wth them. the farmers market pies I have had also have not been good. Costco's pies are actually edible (Im not saying they meet the blue ribbon standard I grew up with, mind or are the best available at any price) but they are a major bargain.

                    Oh! And blue stove in Williamsburg (real butter crust, Jen Kalb!) I think today is the last day to order.

                        I so agree that NYC is not a pie town. Vut we make do... Ladybird Bakery in Park Slope has pretty good pies and even better tarts. Friday is the last day to place orders for Thanksgiving.

                        I've never been impressed by any Greenmarket pies or pastries but they'll be available next Wednesday if you can't get anything else.

                        I should have mentioned good old Cousin John's on 7th and Berkeley. All their traditional pies are better than "good enough," and we have always really like the apple.
