Black Rook Bakehouse

      Part of the fun going into this homey East Village hangout is the chachka-filled décor: cookie-cutters, pots and pans, blackboards, tall goodie jars, an old upright piano, chandeliers, mason jars, wall-hung quilts, and mismatched tables and chairs.

      Sure it’s known for cakes, breads, and monster-sized muffins, but the pies here are something to behold. They’re hefty and homemade-rough around the edges, often topped with a crisp, bumpy crust across the top, with the berry juice just starting to ooze out. The chunky, old-fashioned apple-cinnamon is a staple. A blueberry- or blackberry-apple-walnut version tastes fresh off a farmhouse table. Or go for a coconut cream, sprinkled with roasted shavings.
