A scrap of news is no replacement for pulled pork, but fervid fans of the defunct Williamsburg DIY barbecue joint Pies ‘n’ Thighs will have to take what they can get. It seems the owners are indeed moving forward with their new location on the corner South 4th Street and Driggs, and there will be another Community Board meeting next month. (Last we heard, owner Sarah Buck had yet to sign the lease.)

And if it’s not enough for you to merely eat at Pies ‘n’ Thighs, now you also have the chance to live right on top of their new digs, because a two bedroom apartment is being rented upstairs. For just $2,300 a month, the scent of baking rhubarb pies, fried catfish and pulled pork can be with you always, just call (718) 974-7961. And if you really want to see Pies ‘n’ Thighs take over this “bigger, better, more miraculous hole in the wall,” you can make your voice heard next month at a public hearing. According to the notice, it’s on 6:30 p.m. on April 3rd at 435 Graham Avenue, Brooklyn.
