Once just a popular food truck, the savory pie specialist set up this Bridgeport brick-and-mortar site (literally—it’s got exposed brick walls) last year so people could stuff themselves with golden-crusted pasties without being out in the elements. With winter looming, take note: There may be no heartier handheld meal than the food bomb stuffed with gooey Gruyère, mushrooms, and spinach, paired with an oven-warm chocolate chip cookie.

ORDER: Veggie pasty, $5; chocolate chip cookie, $1.25
