Porchetta returns (for 6 weeks) to 7th Street

As we first noted back in November, Porchetta closed on Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Matt Lindemulder (co-owner along with Porsena's Sara Jenkins) told us that they'd hope to find another location soon for the quick-serve restaurant, which specializes in Italian-style roast pork sandwiches and platters.

Grub Street reports that, starting today, Porchetta returns "as a six-week lunchtime pop-up" at Porsena Extra Bar, the Porsena spinoff restaurant that Jenkins owns at 21 E. Seventh St. between Second Avenue and Cooper Square.

Grub Street notes some menu additions, including rigatoni with porchetta ragù and porchetta mac ’n’ cheese.

Porsena Extra Bar opens at 11:30 a.m.

I wish I could figure this one out. Yes, pop-up stores selling clothing or household furniture--but a restaurant for six weeks? Why?
