Five Great Pot Pies for Taking the Chill Off

Damp, chilly days call for one thing only—pot pie. We found five places to get standout versions of the hearty meal-in-a-crust, just in time (sigh) for the weather’s slow decline toward winter.

Café Selmarie

4729 N. Lincoln Ave., Lincoln Square, 773-989-5595
Of course these dough masters would have a killer pot pie—a bowl of silken stew crowned with flaky knobs of puff pastry.


1851 W. Addison St., Roscoe Village, 773-687-8191
Endgrain’s version tilts Tex-Mex thanks to smoky poblanos and a hearty masa crust.

Honey Butter Fried Chicken

3361 N. Elston Ave., Avondale, 773-478-4000
If you’re going to wait in the occasionally ghastly line for HBFC’s poultry, check its menu online before you go to make sure you can at least get a pie for your troubles.

Hoosier Mama Pie Company

1618 W. Chicago Ave., Ukrainian Village, 312-243-4846
Its petite version wins all the awards for cuteness thanks to the crust cut-out chicken that tops it off.

Pleasant House Bakery

964 W. 31st St., Bridgeport, 773-523-7437
Cozy environs, warm staff, and top-level steak-and-ale pie game. Can we move in?
