Newly nominated for another James Beard award–this time for Best NYC Chef–and definitely deserving of it, April Bloomfield’s food just keeps getting better. For example, her widely-publicized recipe for the bar snack called Devils on Horseback, which are served at The Spotted Pig in the West Village nightly, has recently received an upgrade. New prunes? Uh-uh. Different poaching method for the tender pear tucked inside? Nope. Three words, and like the primary ingredients in the Devils themselves, they are three of my favorites: Double. Smoked. Bacon. From Schaller & Weber. In the tabloids of the meat world, this is cover page news, and it’s actually true. So, next time you’re looking for a cocktail or date night destination, I recommend you reserve a table at The Spotted Pig, and order those Devils before they ride off into the sunset.
