The pop-up restaurant scene in Alameda County has been in limbo since Aug. 21, when a county health inspector shut down the Korean pop-up Nokni at The Kebabery at 4201 Market St. in Oakland.
But county health officials have now reversed course and said that for now they don't anticipate shutting down pop-ups that otherwise are in compliance with the terms of the food facility permit at their host location.
Health Care Services Agency director Colleen Chawla said her agency is reviewing the law as well as other jurisdictions' policies regarding pop-ups and will come back to the health committee in the near future for a plan and a timeline for implementation.
County officials say they define pop-up restaurants as temporary, un-permitted businesses that operate within the permitted commercial kitchen of another established restaurant.
