Asturian Cider House Dinners at Huertas

dm-image-ph Pass the fabada, please. Jonah Miller is bringing Northern Spanish family style feasts every Wednesday (and soon Sundays) to his Basque-inspired restaurant in the East Village. He's kicking off with the dishes of Madrid, featuring the aforementioned chorizo and white bean stew, slow-roasted chicken with guindilla pepper sauce paired, naturally, with funky Spanish ciders. Photo: Sydney Kramer. 6:30 or 9:30 p.m. seatings; 107 First Ave.; $150 a party of up to six people, plus tax and tip

Opening of the Week

Pies 'n' Thighs

The fried chicken gods have answered our prayers: Pies 'n' Thighs has made its Manhattan debut. The Lower East Side outpost's menu is identical to the Williamsburg original, so no need to fret. The team imported their beloved deep-fried chicken with biscuits ($14.50), flaky fried catfish ($14) and pies ($4.50 to $5.50 each), from bourbon pecan to classic banana cream, across the East River along with the doughnut of the month—currently, chewy, slightly funky raised sourdough rings ($3). 43 Canal St.; 212-431-7437

Food Crush

If you love Greek yogurt, this stylish new Soho yogurt bar is your new happy place. The team behind Greecologies cultures all the yogurt in-house (with milk from Upstate NY cows) for an ultra-creamy, lightly tangy version that'll best your usual breakfast combo. We take ours simple, topped with walnuts and honey ($7), or with one of the made-in-Greece preserves, like sour cherries. 379 Broome St.; 212-941-0100

Game Plan

Flowers and candy are dandy, but consider seeking out something more inspired at Bazaar Love, a V-Day-themed pop-up market in Red Hook. Peruse unusually flavored vermouths (read: butternut squash) from Uncouth Vermouth, cheeky cards and designs from Leah Pellegrini and delicate lingerie from Daisy & Elizabeth. Here's to an upgraded Valentine's Day. 2/7 and 2/8, noon to 6 p.m.; 250 Van Brunt St.; free entry

The Pour

Is it Bloody Mary o'clock yet? Mark your calendar (and buy your tickets) for the Fourth Annual Eat, Drink & Bloody Mary contest hosted by L'Apicio. Brunch favorites like Northern Spy Food Co., Extra Fancy, Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria and others are throwing down their best Bloodys for the Judges' trophy, and attendees can vote, too, for the People's Choice. 2/7, noon to 3 p.m.; 13 E. First St.; $50 a person, plus fees
