  Places to eat in Brooklyn New york.

pies and thighs

When you think Williamsburg Brooklyn you think hipsters, tight pants, big hair, and over priced fancy Thai food. But I make the claim that it is home to the best fried chicken in New York. This title is held by Williamsburg own Pies ‘n’ Thighs. A small little hard to find counter top set right under the Williamsburg bridge. Pies ‘n’ Thighs Serves up many of the back yard BBQ favorites such as pulled pork sandwich ($8) catfish ($8, served with corn bread) Hush puppies ($3) and their famous mac and cheese. But my blue ribbon hangs on their Fried Chicken. Now I love it when the chicken is crispy on the outside but so juicy on the inside that it runs down your chin. Make no mistake Pies ‘n’ Thighs and have hit this goal. Pies ‘n’ Thighs is a must stop for and one looking for a good home cooked meal.
Some shop tips:
There is only out door seating.
They are cash only.
There is never a long wait.

 Loreley Restaurant & Bar

Rivington St., New York, NY 10002

Places to eat out in New York City.


For me there is only 3 goods German restaurants in New York City – Heidelberg, Zum Schneider, and Loreley. But for right now we will just talk about Loreley. I am a huge fan of German food this is one of the only styles of cooking that I will pretty much try anything. Now if you already know me you are laughing because you know how picky of an eater I can be. The last time that I was in Berlin Germany I decide that I was going to try every sausage that I could get my hands. Some I could never eat again and some have become a staple of my day to day diet. My favorite for sure was the German currywurst, but a close second was the bratwurst. One of the main dishes in Berlin is a bratwurst with fries, this is amazing and worth eating everyday. Since my first trip to Germany I have never been able to find a German restaurant in the states that was even close to what I have tasted. Now the Sun his shined on this little gem in the Lower East Side. The food gave me the feel and tastes that I was back in Berlin. I do have to say the fries are for sure some of the best in the city. The Wiener Schnitzel mit Pommes Frites is some of the best I have ever had In the states or Germany. My true love at Loreley is the Wurst teller mit Sauerkraut und Kartoffel Puree at 16.00 this for sure will full you up and leave you wanting more. And lets not forget this is a German Restaurant so the Beer is a big part of the set up. Now I don’t drink so I can’t really give you a good sense of the taste, but I can say the serve the beer in the big Oktoberfest style glasses. For me a Plus in the ambience area. I do have to say the Loreley is a must stop for any one that loves to eat out and is looking for a taste if Germany.

This has always been my stop off on my drive from east to west or west to east. About 6 hours outside of Albuquerque I start to slowly taste the BBQ sauce. As I get closer and closer I start to run down the menu. What will I get this time? The Pork ribs that just fall right off the bone and melt in my mouth. Will I get the brisket that is so lean and full of flavor. But I guess it really does not matter at all its Rudy’s. Other then some of the best BBQ in the south west!!!!! I think they have the best cream corn that I have ever eaten. Hands Down you have my word on it. The Place is not to $$$$ and the sit down during the week is right away. You may have a little wait on the week end. If you are on the road and are passing through Albuquerque then Rudy’s is a must stop.
