The fruit tarts at Petrossian are among the best in town. They're currently doing apricot versions with exceptionally flaky crusts.

If you haven't already bought tickets, you should! And now we'll tell you even more reasons why you should...because these are the pies you'll be eating. Black-Bottom Oatmeal Pie, a Plum Tart, Bourbon Ginger Pecan, savory pies, and more. Oh, and there will be plenty of wine, too.
This cherry clafoutis is my new love at Balthazar. The batter is delightfully custardy, and it comes encased in a flaky browned crust.
Eric Kayser's first US location has been opened for a total of three days on the UES, but I've already marked my favorite desserts. We'll get to them all eventually, but let's start with this Apricot Tart. Impossibly fresh, the thin shell is crisp, buttery, and well-browned.

We're bringing back an old favorite today: Sour Cream Apple Walnut Pie from the Little Pie Company. The name is a mouthful, but necessary as all three elements—the sour cream, the walnuts, and the apples—come in equal strength.
This one ($6.50) is a double-crust number, rising high with the pie's height exceeding its width, three sharp slits revealing a true bounty of blueberries.
At Trois Pommes, the mini Blueberry Pie ($7.50) is perfectly portioned for two to share. A sugar-sprinkled lattice top hides a bounty of ripe blueberries neatly tucked deep inside the crust.
The Hudson Valley is that beautiful, expansive chunk of land along the Hudson River that's home to many farms, some of which are represented at New York City's Greenmarket. The farmers trek into the city with their cherries, beets, goat cheese, and many other fresh goodies piled onto flatbeds to sell at farmers' markets and to some restaurants. We recently road-tripped with ABC Kitchen chef Dan Kluger, to meet some of the farmers that supply his ingredients. Here are snapshots of the goat cheese, squash blossoms, whiskey, radishes, and more from our day of cruising around in tractors (and convertibles).

We're back today for yet another slice of this Cranberry-Sage pie. If I were smarter, I would have bought an entire pie instead of stopping in every few days for a slice or two.
This has been a good year for pie—in New York and elsewhere. (In fact, we're wondering if pie is the new cupcake.) Of all the pie shops in New York, both new and old, tell us: which is your favorite? Cast your vote »
Picking between the autumn pie offerings at Four & Twenty Blackbirds in Gowanus is no easy feat. While they may not make the single best pies in town, they are more than delicious, and you can always count on a mix of classic and creative flavors.
What we've learned this week is that bakeries that make great pies might not make great pumpkin pies. Which is why we tasted a few dozen all over New York to find you the best for your Thanksgiving table.
[Photo: Kathy YL Chan] There's chocolate cream pie and banana cream pie, but we have Two Little Red Hens to thank for merging the two. Hello, Chocolate-Banana Cream Pie! Each single-serving pie runs $6.50, and is just as tall...
New York's never been a great pie town. We have lots of great baked goods and lots of talented pastry chefs, but somehow our pies have never made it onto my nationwide pie honor roll. But with artisanally inspired handmade food in Brooklyn appearing at every corner and market, and the borough's do-it-yourself food culture growing ever-larger, we knew that a pie culture couldn't be far behind. Pies 'N Thighs started it, and now to pie lover's rescue come two pie companies—Four and Twenty Blackbirds and First Prize Pies.
[Photo: Kathy Chan] Sometimes the glutton in me wants nothing more than to devour an entire pie by myself. This is where the Little Pie Company, best known for their sour cream apple walnut pies, steps in. Most of...
