Is This the Sample Menu for The Spotted Pig Team's Cafe?

New York City might be getting a new East Village cafe from The Spotted Pig's dynamic duo, Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield. Yesterday, EV Grieve floated the rumor that they were attached to the former San Loco space at 151 Avenue A, and new paperwork (PDF) submitted to the CB3 shows a very April Bloomfield-ish menu with things like devils on horseback, a lamb meatball sandwich, an apple and cheddar salad, and chicken liver toast. The documents also note that the applicants have been operating New York restaurants since 2004, which is the year that The Spotted Pig opened. It looks like this would be a tiny restaurant with a seven-seat bar and five tables.

Friedman has yet to confirm or deny that he and April Bloomfield are involved with this space. It's also worth noting that in the past, they have gone through the process of applying for liquor licenses many times without actually committing to the spaces they were eyeing. So, everything's up in the air, but it sounds like this could be another fun, unusual project from the Spotted Pig Team.

Here is the sample menu that was submitted to the CB3 — keep in mind that this could drastically change before opening day.:
