About

April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman, owners of The Spotted Pig, the Breslin Bar & Dining Room and Salvation Taco bring you a new take on the American classic hamburger through their new restaurant Salvation Burger. Our team prides ourselves on the fact that all ingredients are made in house from our one of a kind meat blends to the mustard and American cheese. Where else can you find that? Burgers range from a variety of options, from the classic burger, made with two thin patties, American cheese, pickles and special sauce to the iconic salvation burger, an 8oz wood fired patty, topped with seasonal ingredients. You can also choose from the veggie burger, fish on bun and house smoked hot dogs. For dessert, we offer a variety of market driven pies as well as traditional or boozy milkshakes, blended with house made ice cream and spirits.

April Bloomfield

CHEF & CO-OWNER

April Bloomfield has spent most of her life in the kitchen and had the pleasure of working with some of the most revolutionary chefs before taking on a kitchen of her own. A native of Birmingham, England, April began her culinary studies at Birmingham College. From there, she went on to hone her craft through cook positions in various kitchens throughout London and Northern Ireland, including Kensington Place and Bibendum. It was under the guidance of Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray at The River Café where she learned to appreciate the beauty and simplicity of food.

Before moving to New York, April spent the summer of 2003 in Berkeley, California at the legendary Chez Panisse. In February 2004, April and restaurateur Ken Friedman opened New York City's first gastropub, The Spotted Pig. Under April's direction, The Spotted Pig has earned one star from the Michelin Guide for seven consecutive years, and since 2010, April & Ken's The Breslin Bar & Dining Room also earned one star two years in a row in the esteemed guidebook. As Food & Wine Magazine's "Best New Chef," April continues to receive widespread attention for her food. In fall 2010, she and Ken opened The John Dory Oyster Bar, which joined The Breslin at New York's Ace Hotel and earned a glowing, two-star review from the New York Times. April's first cookbook, A Girl and Her Pig, was published by Ecco in April 2012.

Ken Friedman

CO-OWNER

Friedman wasn’t always a restaurateur. A Los Angeles native, he attended UC Berkeley where he discovered San Francisco’s lively music scene. The young Friedman left college to pursue a full-time career in music as a concert promoter, first independently and then working for the legendary Bill Graham. He moved to London to manage bands such as The Smiths and UB40, and then eventually found himself in New York City, working with the renowned Clive Davis at Arista Records.

When Friedman turned 40, he decided to make a career change, and friends suggested that he think about opening a restaurant. It seemed a natural fit; Friedman spent many nights frequenting New York City’s best restaurants while entertaining his clients, and friends continually offered to invest in his first project, sure that it would be a success.

They were right. In February 2004, he opened New York City’s first gastropub with chef April Bloomfield. The Spotted Pig has earned one star from the Michelin Guide for seven consecutive years and, in 2010, Friedman and Bloomfield’s The Breslin Bar & Dining Room has also earned one star two years in a row in the esteemed guidebook. In fall 2010, the duo opened The John Dory Oyster Bar, which joined The Breslin at New York’s Ace Hotel and recently earned a glowing, two-star review from The New York Times.
