Mid-Week Menu: A Spanish New Year’s Party, a Coffeehouse Class, and Some Cal Food Truck Drama

We’re one day later than usual, but welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our weekly roundup of East Bay food news.

1) Duende (468 19th St., Oakland), Oliveto alum Paul Canales’ arty new project — part Spanish-inspired restaurant, part high-end neighborhood bodega, part art gallery and live performance venue — is in full-on pre-opening mode right now. Grub Street made note of a music event that took place last week. And Duende will also be hosting a New Year’s Eve party ($25) that will feature live music and picoteos (Spanish finger foods). The official opening date for the restaurant still hasn’t been set, but the latest I heard is that it’s going to be in late December or early January.
