Michelin-starred chef April Bloomfield is yet again teaming up with restaurateur Ken Friedman on a new project: a whole-animal butcher shop. While Bloomfield is already known for her meaty offerings at The Spotted Pig, now the chef is giving her loyal patrons a chance to experiment with the same high-end cuts.

Bloomfield and Friedman's whole-animal butcher shop will be called White Gold and it will be located along Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The shop will sell high-end items such as "homemade pâtés and sausages, organ meats, bone broth and various cuts of steak, as well as roasted whole heritage hog on special occasions." The shop will also double as a diner, which will focus on using every part of the animal.

With a growing demand for more natural meat options, Bloomfield's gourmet butchery caters to those looking for alternatives to grocery store meat.
