Is that the place with the spleen sandwich?

The Sicilian-style restaurant Focacciaria on 1st ave between St Marks and 9th, made the vistedda - beef spleen - sandwiches.  Hard ricotta cheese and beef spleen fried in lard served with shredded parmigiano reggiano on a roll.

yeah, considering the idea of the dairy was that it was meatless, though fish seems to be acceptable, spleen was unlikely.
