Unidentified Flying Chickens isn't apparently long for this East Village world

The East Village outpost of the Jackson Heights-based Korean fried chicken restaurant opened this past July at 60 Third Ave. near East 11th Street.
Apparently the place is not much longer for this world. There's a new applicant seeking a liquor license for the address, according to materials (PDF!) on file ahead of this month's CB3/SLA committee meeting next Monday night.
There's not much information just yet. The applicant's name happens to be an owner of Taproom 307 on Third Avenue near East 23rd Street.
UFC did make it longer than the previous tenant. Last spring, Apiary, the nearly 6-year-old restaurant, closed here for a revamp. After a splashy, well-publicized makeover, the new place, Après, closed after just three weeks.
