USA today: 'Merica NYC signage arrives

Workers hoisted the 'Merica NYC signage yesterday at 320 E. Sixth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue...
A commenter on the previous 'Merica post said that this is just for a pop-up event. It does sound temporary.
According to the 'Merica NYC Facebook page, the restaurant will serve food that "laughs in the face of caution and holds two middle fingers way up high, cause guess what? This is America and we eat what we want!"
Menu items include The Kanye: "Fried breast of chicken tossed in a creamy rich Alfredo sause served over mashed potatoes, then drizzled with a balsamic glaze. This meal will make you into a famous rapper and a narcissistic asshole. Ask the public to loan you the money for it. $18."

This block of Sixth Street, previously known for plentiful Indian restaurants with inexpensive menu items and BYOB, is getting awfully gimmicky with 'Merica NYC (temporary or not) and the recently opened Beetle House with its Tim Burton theme.
