Celebu-chef Susur Lee's long-awaited Bent (777 Dundas W, at Markham, 647-352-0093, susur.com) is scheduled to open this weekend after a series of tasting dinners.
The project - Lee's first with his sons Levi and Kai Bent-Lee as partners - was supposed to be unveiled early last spring but has suffered a number of construction delays.
Designed by their mother Brenda Bent who gives the elegant boite its name, the new operation is aimed at a much different clientele than that of their TV chef father's eponymous flagship on King West.
"Lee is my parents' vision, but the new restaurant is mine and my brother's. And it'll be aimed at a much younger crowd.," says Kai Bent-Lee.
