April Bloomfield’s gifts to the city are distinctive, ambitious, and, yes, very often porcine. And with The Spotted Pig, Bloomfield (and Friedman, et. al) has given New Yorkers a taste of Europe’s seemingly effortless cool: a gastropub marriage of Brit and Italian culinary concepts with Bloomfield’s ballsy genius. The liquid bow on the Spotted Pig package is provided by Mixologist Ryan Gannon, who oversees the list at the downtown bar. Gannon accommodates the Brit side of the menu with some of Her Majesty’s best, including fruit infusions, ginger, gin, and, of course, hearty black tea. But Gannon’s flexible with his flavor profiles, which tend to be exquisitely smooth (but not homogenous), with particularly deft use of citrus and umami.
