The West Village's Sister Pie is one of the nation's top 21 bakeries, according to the national food website Thrillist.

Thrillist checked out bakeries across the nation and and praised Sister Pie for it's crust work:
A pie is only as good as its crust. It’s an old adage that this West Village newcomer takes to heart, and the buttery, flaky crusts here are more than simply a vessel: They’re kind of the star. You could fill them with a bunch of old pennies and still have something delicious. Luckily, they don’t do that very weird thing. They fill them with salted maple in one standout option on a roster that includes a transcendent honey lemon meringue, sweet beets, and whatever else comes to the chefs’ minds. Grab some cookies, too — the fennel-seed snickerdoodle is a beast — and some meaty hand-pies, the ingredients for which are obsessively sourced from local farms.

Thrillist also recently named NeeHee's one of America's top Indian restaurants and St. Clair Shores Travis Coffee Shop one of the nation's top diners.
