The departed chef's cafe had been closed for a week.

Following the reopening of Moto this past Saturday, Berrista, departed chef Homaro Cantu's other existing restaurant, is slated to get back in business tomorrow. Like Moto, Berrista, Cantu's miracle berry-driven coffee and pastry concept, had been closed since the innovative chef passed away on April 14. A post on the restaurant's Facebook page announced the reopening on Sunday.

Before Berrista's temporary closure, its hours were 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, and closed Mondays. It's currently unknown if there will be any changes at the cafe. Read Berrista's most current menu on its website, which features a daily doughnut selection, carbonated fruit, sandwiches, coffees, house sodas and more. Cantu launched curbside service in March, had frequently given away free iced coffee and other drinks, and implemented a free lunch program for Chicago public school students at Berrista.

Moto, Cantu's signature restaurant on Fulton Market, reopened for dinner service on Saturday with the help of Charlie Trotter's son Dylan, according the Sun-Times, in addition to outgoing chef Richie Farina, incoming chef Chris Anderson, and other Moto alumni. It appears to be open indefinitely under pre-existing hours. You can send donations to the Cantu Children's Trust at 1555 Sherman Avenue Box 177, Evanston, IL 60201.
