Berkeley beer & food truck garden

Berkeleyside reports there's a trailer- / truck-based project a la the one in Hayes Valley in the works at Gilman and Curtis:

  1. I'm glad a building won't be going up there and that the Lasagna family's still involved -- they go way back. Having roti roti a three minute walk away might be a bit of a temptation for me, but overall it's good news.

    1. The first truck has shown up -- Desi Dogs from Brazil Cafe. There's still a lot of work to be done, though. They're setting up tables with overturned buckets for chairs, I assume just to get a sense of spacing.

        Yup they are definitely working out spacing and probably traffic flow. They got the plans approved and looks like they are aiming for a late July opening. Should be a nice summer outdoor dining option.

            Does anyone have any further news?

              There's been no progress at all, as far as I can tell. They missed summer. It may not be happening. Anyone else know anything?

        1. The pending liquor license application says Brazil Cafe. The city approved a use permit. The architect's site says nothing about food trucks.

            that project on the DSA site is for the end of the bike path across Curtis St from the biergarden location.

          2. The signs are gone. Anyone know anything?

              Maybe they're waiting for the liquor license?

                There seem to be a series of high wooden posts on the Gilman side. License still shows as pending. http://abc.ca.gov/datport/LQSData.asp...
