Bero will be opening at 889 Queen St. E., in the space currently occupied by The Commissary, so fans of that place will have to bid it adieu. Kantor and his team will be giving the place a minor physical revamp but a major culinary one — the menu will be completely different.
“A lot of people think of me as a Spanish cook,” Kantor says, “and that will be the beginning of this restaurant.”
But the food won’t be a straight-up Spanish, he says. It will have a myriad of other influences, mostly European. Kantor will be heading up the kitchen as head chef.
The restaurant is set to open by July 10.
