The owner of one of the citys most famous celeb hangouts, the Spotted Pig, has been accused of routinely groping female employees and demanding sex and nude photos from them while allowing his buddies to molest them too, a new report says.
An after-hours space on the third floor of restaurateur Ken Friedmans tony Village hot spot is even known among workers and industry insiders as the rape room where public sex is on display, according to the New York Times, quoting 10 women who are accusing the powerful businessman of unwanted sexual advances.
Former longtime server Trish Nelson said Friedman once grabbed her head as she was kneeling down behind the bar to get some glasses, told her while youre down there, and pulled it toward his crotch all in front of actress Amy Poehler in 2007, according to the Times.
Aside from hanging my head in painful humiliation, I did nothing, Nelson wrote on Facebook in October. I cant even retell this story now without getting teary.
Pohler told the Times through a rep, I have no recollection of this, but its horrible.
A few years later, Nelson said, Friedman invited her to his car to smoke pot.
Then he lunged at her and stuck his tongue in her mouth, she said.
I couldnt believe it, she told the Times. I had worked for him for six years.
She said she soon gave her notice.
The workers said that after hours, Friedman brings celebrity guests and his buddies upstairs to a third-floor room where nudity reigns, public sex occurs and he and patrons grope the help.

The Spotted Pig — named after Td Kennedy?
I would bet he’s a Democrat........................just a guess................
Pretty bad when one names a celebrity eye witness as your witness/proof and she says
I have no recollection of this, but its horrible.
Then gets invited to smoke pot and he ‘attacks’ her again.
Then she goes on to say that she had worked for him for 6 years.....
Sounds like his joint is named correctly -
This EVERYONE KNOWS gets old and the ‘stories’ don’t get any more believable.
Like Yogi Berra used to say
‘That place is so crowded nobody goes there anymore’
(that line actually makes sense)
‘If you come to a fork in the road, take it.’
She knew he was a disgusing perv and she still got into a car with him to smoke pot?
With that mug? Slam dunk. Sure ain't Irish.
Damn - had a great burger here a couple of years ago...
I bet health safety inspectors need to disclose their bank accounts.
FRIEDMAN, KENNETH D NEW YORK NY 10014 THE SPOTTED PIG OWNER GILLIBRAND, KIRSTEN ELIZABETH VIA GILLIBRAND FOR SENATE 10/15/2010 2400.00 12020101364
Will Gillibrand return the money....?
She’ll do anything for a campaign donation.
A few years after one incident (that she did not quit over), the boss asks her to go share some pot in his car. And just want did she think he thought was going to happen? Nothing else? Granted, her boss was a creep and a pervert. And her? An idiot.
If “everybody” knew about what was going on, and hadn’t quit, it means they thought the pay (and tips, and opportunities to hang out with celebrities) was good enough to put up with it at the time.
How the hell can something like this go on without SOMEBODY ratting on this POS?
Not just for a campaign donation...
How do you know they didn’t? :-(
And Gillibrand complains about Trump?
Probably caters for the Lolita Express, too.
