NYC pie from Little Pie Company, Two Little Red Hens Bakery, Petee's Pie Company and more

Apple, pumpkin, pecan -- oh pie!

Summer can keep its berry treats, and lemon meringue can stay in spring; for fall, it's often about the mainstay of so many holiday tables: Apple, pumpkin and pecan pies. But bakeries around the city have taken the autumnal food tradition in new directions, whether it's by combining new ingredients or exotic flavors.

Now that you're craving a slice, here are some of the best places for you to get your seasonal pie fix in New York City.

Bubby's began as a wholesale company specializing in pies, but evolved into a restaurant complete with brunch, lunch and dinner menus. This hasn't taken away from their success in the dessert department, however, as Bubby's continues to stay true to their first love: pies. Although they only offer five flavors (Michigan sour cherry, organic peanut butter chocolate, key lime, banana cream, and of course, apple), their corner storefront in the heart of TriBeCa provides an antique yet modern atmosphere where you can have your pie and eat it, too. Bubby's seasonal flavors include pumpkin, pecan maple and apple whiskey crumble. Info: 120 Hudson St., bubbys.com
