Food Network, Serious Eats, and The New York Daily News agree—Little Pie Company tops the upper crust of NYC dessert offerings. Equal parts friendly neighborhood joint and four-star patisserie, it opened in 1985 in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen with seasonal pies for every month and mood. With pasty chefs baking away in their storefront window and seductive aromas wafting out the front door, Little Pie Company tempts every passerby to stop in and indulge.

About The Food

From perfectly flaky light crust to expertly handmade fillings ranging from three-berry to pecan to Key lime to Mississippi mud, everything from the Little Pie Company tastes exactly as you hope a pie would, right down to the last buttery crumb. As Serious Eats put it in their write-up of NY's 5 Best Pies, “these guys still make a mean double-crusted pie. The crust is flaky and light, the fruit doesn't drip out of pie like a waterfall, and the bottom crust is usually just as brown as the top.” Don’t miss their house specialty, the sour cream apple walnut pie. With thinly sliced, layered Granny Smith apples and a sublime cinnamon-walnut-streusel crumb topping, it’s a slice of pie heaven.

Meet The Owner

Owner Arnold Wilkerson was creating drama as a well-established Broadway theater actor (performing alongside Dustin Hoffman!) long before captivating an audience with pies. But what started out as a side business in his apartment became a bona fide smash hit in 1985 when Arnold opened his world-class pie shop in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen. Today, the company known for mythic handmade-from-scratch pies continues to satisfy pie lovers with unparalleled renditions of classics and fresh originals.
