Porchetta outpost taking over the Mingala Burmese space



Earlier today we mentioned that Mingala Burmese Restaurant at 21 East Seventh St. (a few doors east of McSorley's) had closed. Now Eater brings word that the folks behind Porchetta just down the street have applied for a liquor license here.

I'm with you, Daria... I don't understand all the fuss either.

can you grieve about Agnes and Eva's Cafe closing down? it was this nice cafe owned/operated by a mom & daughter, you go downstairs to this lil room blissfully away from the usual manh bustle... free wifi, decent brunch foods, no attitude, jazz music playing on stereo, not crowded... i'm so sad, hard to find a non-crowded cafe in the e. village

I didn't realize that Agnes & Eva's closed... A shame. Seemed like a lovely little spot.

I can't stand Porchetta's food...almost broke a tooth on the pork crackling, it's as hard as wood. And it reeks of the too much fennel they load it up with it.

Maybe a pasta place would okay.

Oh, and we're not "unhip". We're BEYOND hip...
