Tavern in the Square in Allston hosted a viewing party on Sunday night for James DiSabatino and the guys from Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, who survived their first week on the Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race.’’ The restaurant was packed with fans of the Cleveland Circle food truck. They booed Roxy’s competitors and cheered when the truckers weren’t cut at the end of the episode. Revelers included Roxy’s staffers Mike Kennedy and Sydney Howland and Roxy’s co-owner Marc Melanson. . . . In other foodie news, chef Antonio Bettencourt, of 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar in Salem, will appear on tomorrow night’s episode of “Rocco’s Dinner Party,’’ the Bravo show that has chefs cooking for Rocco DiSpirito and his famous friends.
