.Mid-Week Menu: Umami Burger Oakland and The Star on Grand Take Off, Sobo Introduces Gluten-Free Ramen, and Off the Grid Debuts in El Cerrito

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

1) The new Uptown Oakland location of Umami Burger (2100 Franklin St.), the hugely popular SoCal burger chain with modernist leanings, softly opened on Monday. The menu is similar to what customers will find at the chain’s other locations, with the exception of one site-specific signature burger: the Queso Fundido Burger, which is topped with oozy housemade chile con queso and chorizo fundido sauce. For now, the restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., though the closing time might get tweaked during this soft opening period.
