Chicken biscuit specialist Pies 'N' Thighs is now little more than a gas hookup away from opening its lunch counter on Canal Street. Bowery Boogie learns from employees at the Williamsburg original that the team hopes to open on or around January 15, and as a glimpse inside shows, the stools are all lined up and ready to go.
When it does open, the new place promises to "go heavy on the sandwiches," more so than the original, but that doesn't there won't be plenty of old favorites, fried chicken and pie included. As of now, liquor license approval is apparently still pending, so there's a chance diners may have to wait a bit before they can expect anything stiffer that sweet tea and Arnold Palmers.
