Welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our roundup of East Bay food news.
1) The East Bay isn’t known for its Brazilian restaurants — and most of the ones we do have are all-you-can-eat steakhouses, which, obviously, aren’t the kind of place you can eat at every day. Berkeyside Nosh
reports that two Oakland residents are planning to fill that void with by opening Paulista
(4239 Park Ave.) in the former Rumbo al Sur space in Oakland’s Glenview neighborhood. Owners Alex Yamamoto and Jesse Madway plan to serve homestyle comfort food — things like feijoada
, the classic bean-and-sausage stew. The idea is for it to be a family-friendly place that will be open all day, with an emphasis on local craft beer. Look for a July 1 opening.
