Welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our roundup of East Bay food news.
1) If you are a fan of Juhu Beach Club and have perhaps hoped that the stylish Indian restaurant would stay open all day, or that chef Preeti Mistry would try her hand at making pizza or breakfast pastries — well, I have good news for you: Earlier this week
, Mistry announced that she and wife/business partner Ann Nadeau are opening a new all-day cafe-restaurant called Navi Kitchen
in Emeryville’s Triangle neighborhood, at the former Basic Cafe spot (5000 Adeline St.). The basic concept will be American cafe-style foods reimagined with Indian flavors: rotisserie chicken with a burnt masala
brine, pizza with toppings like chaat masala
frying peppers, and tikka masala
mac and cheese — plus an assortment of housemade biscuits, quick breads, and other baked goods.
