When it opened, Pies and Thighs was just a couple of southern hipsters making fried chicken and pie in this back-street lean-to with a cooler and a hot-plate, attached to a sort of dodgy bar with a square of astro-turf outside. Then they were closed, seemingly forever, and everyone was bereft. And when they reopened, they were in a real space, in a more central location, and were a proper restaurant with a kitchen and crockery the owner/chef's mother threw, and wine from her sister's vineyard, and you can even sit down. The fried chicken and the pie and the biscuits are all still scrummy, as my British friend (who made a meal of mac and cheese, black-eyed peas, collards, and peanut-butter pie, for you veggies out there) said. And if it's less quirky, it's certainly more reliable! (And come in the morning, by the by, for egg sandwiches, fresh donuts and coffee.) It's still cash only, for the moment.
