Mid-Week Menu: Box and Bells, Lungomare, and Fancy Thanksgiving Takeout

Welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our weekly roundup of East Bay food news.

1) Inside Scoop has the latest on James Syhabout’s new project in the just-shuttered Somerset space (5912 College Ave.). The restaurant will be called Box and Bells, and some menu ideas that Syhabout and chef Daniel Coe are bandying about include such curiosity-piquers as potato boxty (a kind of pancake, apparently) with salt cod and herbs, fried chicken with raw oyster mayonnaise (raw oyster whaaat??), and cote du boef with a fricassee of snails. According to Inside Scoop, there will be a series of preview dinners at Syhabout’s other spin-off, Hawker Fare, probably starting in January.
