Pero Restaurant & Lounge
Pero Restaurant & Lounge's chef Wondiy Beshir gathers traditional East African dishes from Ethiopia and Eritrea, peppering in a few of his own signature recipes to design a menu that reflects modern Africa's ever-evolving epicurean trends. He sprinkles colourful powders and pungent herbs in exact pinches, imbuing dishes with layers of aromatic spices without overwhelming the senses or accidentally creating a low-pressure system.
Chef Beshir's menu—which includes beef, vegetarian dishes, and combination platters, as well as a small glossary explaining their spices and injera—brings the flavours of Africa to life in a dining room covered in photos depicting the origins of African food. A cabana anchors the African theme with carved wooden benches, baskets, and gauzy white curtains. Live jazz ensembles serenade patrons with melodies during select dinner services and special events held in the Sotto Pero lounge.
