An Eater correspondent reports from West 11th Street in the West Village:
The Spotted Pig is closing for about 3-4 weeks starting August 13th to expand the restaurant into their upstairs private lounge, which unfortunatley means the lounge won't exist anymore. However, the downstairs will have a private "smoking room" off to the side somewhere. During the closing, operations will be moved to the Soho House, where patrons will be able to dine.What this means for recent upstairs regulars Will Arnet and wife Amy Poehler remains to be seen. We'll look for them at the Soho House bar.
On a tangential note, we're inclined to ask: is The Spotted Pig the only Gotham restaurant that maintains its own blogroll? A pretty solid list, actually.
