The Eater Pumpkin Pie Heatmap: Where to Eat Right Now

View as Map

It's Thanksgiving Week, which means it's time for any procrastinators out there to finally get serious about pie. Sure, a lot of bakeries across America have already seen their pre-order deadlines pass by, but just like last year there are still plenty of hot pumpkin pies to be had in time for Thanksgiving or beyond from these 16 bakeries that have been open for a year or less.

San Francisco's well-received B. Patisserie is scheduled to be open on Thanksgiving Day, while Detroit's highly anticipated Rock City Eatery is offering pies on a first-come, first-served basis today and tomorrow. Meanwhile, Andrew Carmellini's white-hot Lafayette in New York City, Thomas Keller's new Bouchon Bakery outpost in Vegas, and Philadelphia newcomer Kermit's Bake Shoppe are still accepting pre-orders until this very evening. So get out there and get some pumpkin pie already.


Tried any of the places on the list or feel there are any glaring omissions? You know what to do.
