When Oakland passed its interim mobile food vending policy a year ago, allowing food trucks to hawk their wares legally outside of the Fruitvale for the first time, the people rejoiced — many of them happy, in particular, to finally get some decent lunch options near downtown workplaces, at least a couple days a week. But what everyone really wanted to know was: When was Off the Grid — the granddaddy of all food truck parties, at least here in the Bay Area — coming to Oakland?

Finally, we have an answer: On Friday, January 25 — and every Friday after that — from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Off the Grid will pop up outside the Oakland Museum of California. The weekly event will feature a lineup of ten mobile food vendors (with room to expand to as many as twelve), all parked on a single block of 10th Street, between Oak and Fallon, which will be closed off to traffic.

Here's to a burpy and buzzed 2013, y'all.

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

1) Eater SF has a brief update on downtown Oakland’s Tribune Tavern (409 13th St.), the much-buzzed-about collaboration between Chop Bar co-owner Chris Pastena and Grand Tavern’s Temoor Noor: A website has been unveiled, as has the restaurant’s logo and overall brand identity (designed by Oaklandish). Located on the first floor of the Tribune Building, the restaurant — sure to be a popular business lunch spot — is slated to open by the end of March.

2) After some low-key soft-opening action and a brief construction delay, the Chez Panisse alums behind Ramen Shop (5812 College Ave.) have set their official opening date to this Friday, January 4, according to Eater SF. Suffice it to say that East Bay Japanophiles and noodle enthusiasts — heretofore starved for quality ramen options — are ready to get their slurp on.
