Slideshow: Where To Buy Last-Minute Thanksgiving Pie in New York

Little Pie Co.
Little Pie Co.
We still love their signature sour cream apple pie—"Would eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner," said Maggie Hoffman. "And I have." They also gave us the best answer when we asked if they'd have last-minute pies available: "Come stand at the back door and see what you can get." A Thanksgiving adventure. Open 8am-2pm on Thanksgiving.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds
Four and Twenty Blackbirds
This Park Slope / Gowanus pie shop makes us extraordinarily happy, particularly the salted caramel apple pie pictured here, which will be available for Thankgsiving. (While we have to acknowledge one not-great experience with their pumpkin pie, we're hoping it's a one-off.) Whole pies sold Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 8:00 AM until they sell out.

Bouchon Bakery

Not surprisingly, the bakery turns out visually stunning pies, though some (a flaky-crusted, cream-topped pecan) were better than others (an apple crumb that was about six parts crumb to one part apple). Some pies will be available for over-the-counter purchase; call ahead. Open 8am-1pm Thanksgiving day.

The sandwich shop makes a pretty great pecan pie (not too sweet, not too goopy), pumpkin, and a pretty crumb-heavy apple crumb. In store, while supplies last. Open Wednesday, closed Thanksgiving.

Yura on Madison
Yura on Madison
With fantastic flaky crusts and never-too-sweet fillings, Yura's pies are probably my favorite in New York right now. Her blueberry pie is in my all-time Top 10, but for the season, the pumpkin pie is mighty fine, too. "We'll have a lot of pies!" they told us. Open Wednesday, closed Thanksgiving.

They make a great chocolate pecan pie, a fine, fine apple pie, and an excellent harvest pie, filled with apples, pears, walnuts, and a hit of ginger. Lucky you are, Upper East Side. They're "baking around the clock"; first-come, first served. Open 7am-2pm on Thanksgiving.

Francois Payard

The most Thanksgiving-appropriate of their confections might be the "Papa Payard," an apple-pear-cranberry tart with crystallized sugar and pistachio; it's got a beautifully browned and particularly tasty crust. Pies and pastries available for walk-in purchase. Open Wednesday, closed Thanksgiving.
