Mid-Week Menu: Cocina Criolla, Comal, and a Chop Bar Spinoff

Continuing the tradition started by my predecessor, Jesse Hirsch, I’m happy to present the Mid-Week Menu, a weekly roundup of East Bay food news.

1) Grub Street brings news of a fledgling Puerto Rican pop-up called Cocina Criolla, to be held at Piedmont Avenue’s Dopo. The project is the brainchild of Dopo cook Ian Hernandez — the first dinner is scheduled for Sunday, May 6, with a $45 four-course menu that includes octopus salad and skirt steak with rice and beans.
