The Chickie Pig’s pizzeria has been out of commission for two years now.  In that time, the space remained dormant, and all available window real estate was dedicated to promoting the storefront rental.  But now it appears the drought is finally over at 121 Ludlow Street.

When the Community Board 3 SLA docket for July was first released, it included a “Corp to be formed” at this address.  Other than that, there was no further information on the venture. However, new notices to neighbors posted ahead of tonight’s meeting indicate a noodle joint is in the works (Ludlow Noodle, Inc.), and is seeking a beer and wine license.  That should keep the Orchard Street Noodle Bar some company.
