What the cluck? Chickens in the works for former vegetarian hotspot Dirt Candy on East 9th Street

The popular vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy closed at 430 E. Ninth St. at the end of last August ahead of its relocation to a larger space on Allen Street.
In November 2013, Dirt Candy chef Amanda Cohen told us that she was unsure what would become of the small Ninth Street location between Avenue A and First Avenue.
Yesterday, EVG regular William Klayer spotted this flyer on the former Dirt Candy space... a menu for something called Chickens... specializing in, well, chicken... chicken any way that you want it...
In an email to us last night, Cohen said that she sold the space, but couldn't divulge any other details at the moment.
So we hope to find out who's behind these chickens soon...
