Bero Brings Creative Cooking to Leslieville

Leslieville isn’t typically lauded as a fine-dining hub—indeed, the east-end neighbourhood is flush with cafés and brunch spots—which made last summer’s appearance of Bero all the more welcome. Chef Matt Kantor, previously known for his work at various pop-up dining events, helms the kitchen at this cozy corner spot. An acolyte of Ferran Adrià, Kantor naturally gears his menu toward Spanish and contemporary European fare made, in part, with modernist techniques. And while an adherence to seasonality means that specific ingredients and preparations are bound to change, you can expect that each offering will be strikingly plated and abundantly flavourful.  —Craig Moy
