Pies and Thighs, 166 S. 4th Street (at Driggs) Brooklyn, NY 11211
A hole in the wall that packs up fast, service is lax, but the CHICKEN BISCUIT is worth it all. There is nothing better for a freshly fried flawless piece of chicken to wear than a slathering of hot sauce, honey butter, and two fluffy biscuits.
This is killer southern cuisine, appropriately priced. Be sure to get some sides to fill up on. The cornmeal fried catfish box is a more filling meal, which comes with a choice of side, coleslaw, and cornbread.
Meat is sourced from humane farms. If you are hungry for dessert, pies and donuts are on the menu.

With so many tiny restaurants in Williamsburg, the spacious and lovely spot is a breath of fresh air. Perfect for a date night, special occasion, or just because – the food and atmosphere is wonderful. There is a gorgeous patio and a lavish interior.
Spanish cuisine is offered and you’ll start out with a sumptuous focaccia and decadent olive spread, I had to hold back from licking the little bowl.
The zucchini flat bread was a fantastic tapas option – stunning in presentation: Goat cheese, caramelized onion, frisée, and spicy honey.
For a main I ordered the salmon which is one of the most memorable I’ve had in some time with a sweet potato puree, asparagus, and roasted tomato.
Healthy and absolutely delicious. The experience was classic, I am eager to return again soon.

Munching on Moroccan cuisine is delightful at this bustling café. A popular spot even during a Monday afternoon – a bit cramped, but I never felt neglected. I was at a crossroads between breakfast and lunch, so the Middle Eastern Eggs sounded like an ideal fix. Eggs your way, I chose poached which were cooked to pure divinity, a yummy serving of hummus, tabouli and Arabic salad, plus warm slices of zahatar pita. It was hearty, healthy, and hit the spot. I would really love to try their tagines next time, there is another location is located in the East Village of Manhattan.
Kichin, 90 Wythe Ave Brooklyn, NY 11249
Such a fun variety of Korean cuisine! You can sample anything from dumplings, to katsu tenders, kimbap, and kimchi fried rice. You should try one of their rice balls that come in fun flavors like bacon egg cheese, spicy salmon, or korean bbq.
I love it when healthy can be seriously tasty too. I ordered a bowl and got the flakey, flavorful, just right hunk of salmon. The base of greens and veggies was solid and the variety kept it interesting.
This was a really solid meal, made fast and fresh by friendly staff!
