Mid-Week Menu: Off the Grid Comes to Emeryville, Phoenix Pastificio to Open Restaurant, and Oakland Chefs Duke It Out in Burger Derby

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

1) After a soft launch last week, the new Off the Grid food truck gathering in Emeryville is having its grand opening today, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., behind Emeryville City Hall (on a section of Haven St., between Park Ave. and 40th St., that will be closed off to traffic for the event). The weekly four-truck event should be a boon to Emeryville’s mass of hungry office workers. According to proprietor Matt Cohen, this Off the Grid outpost will boast plentiful free parking in a parking lot adjacent to the space behind city hall. This week’s lineup: Mayo & Mustard, Hapa SF, Whip Out!, and Tandoori Chicken USA.
