MILWAUKEE – BelAir Cantina, a Mexican-fusion restaurant famous for its tacos, tequila and fresh ingredients, announced today its new location at The Corners of Brookfield will open to the public Monday, April 17. The restaurant will be located at 250 High Street within the lifestyle center adjacent to the Market Square. A grand opening celebration will be held the following weekend from Friday April 21 through Sunday, April 23.

During the grand opening event, 50 percent of all food sales will benefit the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for The Arts, a local nonprofit multi-disciplinary cultural arts center.

The Wilson Center works to be the catalyst for lifelong discovery and exploration of the arts. Since opening their doors in 2002, more than 550,000 lives have been enriched through the Wilson Center’s performances, festivals, exhibits, classes, and workshops-including the lives of more than 9,000 children and youth served every year through their arts education programming.

This will be the fifth location for BelAir Cantina in the greater Milwaukee area with a sixth restaurant opening in Madison this summer. BelAir is part of Toro, Toro, Toro, a restaurant group owned by Wisconsin natives Leslie Montemurro, Kristyn Eitel and Scott Johnson.

“When we consider new locations, we are always looking for the right spaces with the right fit for BelAir,” Montemurro said. “We were thrilled with The Corners’ commitment to offering local restaurant options to its shoppers. This approach is right in line with our way of doing things. We’re excited to offer a little bit of “home” to shoppers enjoying The Corners.”

Plans for the new location include an area for outdoor seating, a fun and relaxed environment with a California-inspired décor and menu. The restaurant will be open during the weekdays from 11 a.m. – bar close and on weekends from 10 a.m. – bar close, with brunch served on the weekends. There will be happy hour daily Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.

“BelAir Cantina definitely has a California surf twist on traditional Mexican. While we have old school favorites like Carne Asada, Al Pastor and Barbacoa, we also mix in taco truck-style specialties like Baja Tilapia and Korean Beef, with lots of our own unique combinations. There are plenty of options for vegetarians and all our salsas and ingredients are prepared fresh daily,” said Noe Zamora, Chef and Partner.
