Is there anything more beautiful than porchetta curing in a corner? Not really. This is just one item you'll see on Bruce Kalman's (The Churchill) upcoming Italian-themed menu for This Is Not a Pop-up this week. He's making gnocchi alla romana with porchetta, clams and snap pea tendrils, as well as wild mushroom tortelloni with smoked ricotta and chestnuts, squid ink garganelli with lobster and black truffle butter, and egg yolk ravioli with Maggie's Farms greens. The only thing not Italian: apple-bacon upside down cake with bourbon glaze, which sounds just up our alley. The five-course menu, perfect for Italian Food Week (!), is only $55 per person, Thrusday through Sunday at Square One Dining in East Hollywood.
