Opening Soon: BEAR Steak Sandwiches in Little Italy

You won’t see Carmy or Cousin Ritchie but this “Bear” restaurant is real and it’s in Toronto. Ricardo Barrientos and Aki Erenberg started by making their flank steak sandwiches for family and friends in Barrientos’ backyard on Palmerston. The online buzz and high demand led them to move to a commercial kitchen behind Scadding Court Community Centre. Now they are gearing up for the grand opening of their storefront on College Street.

The Bear has a focused menu centered on a delicious flank steak sandwich served on a Portuguese-style bun and topped generously with their special homemade chimichurri.

Wondering about the name? “BEAR” is simply a combination of the owners’ initials. Bear Steak Sandwiches is opening in the fall of 2023 in Toronto’s Littly Italy neighbourhood. 550 College Street, Toronto.
