It had been taken over (seemed more of a sublet) by the guy who ran Cafe Biere. I noticed last week paper signs on the doors. I then found this post on Yelp by the owner of the Montero's, Talavera, et al. group. All very strange. Great location that hasn't seemed to live up to its potential in ages.
Dear friends of MONTEROS
Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience
you may have experienced in the past 3 months
Unfortunately, BAKON BIERRE was allowed to start doing business here with out first changing there name from MONTEROS to BAKON BIERRE giving MONTEROS a bad name along the way, sad to inform that BAKON BIERRE is closed for business after only 3 months
MONTEROS will re introduce a new restaurant with good food, good drinks and a wonderful and friendly service
