It is with sadness that we must advise that you avoid Pies ‘n’ Thighs. We came here once many months ago and had a lovely meal in a relatively quiet space, but we came early–10:00 a.m.–and the waiter lowered the music on his own without request! Our most recent visit, however, was painful. The counterman who greeted everyone as they entered was LOUD–someone get that guy a hearing test, stat!–as was the music and most of the other customers. Add in the loud design troika (subway tiles, glass, and stainless steel) and an open kitchen and you are left with an unpleasant aural assault as you eat, which is a real shame because the fried chicken is great and the chicken biscuit is sublime. Only enter if the place is empty or if you are buying for takeaway.
