After years of hearing his neighbors begging for a restaurant on Silver Spring Drive, Whitefish Bay resident and restauranteur Paul Berlin decided to step up to the plate. Berlin is one of two experienced restauranteurs behind The Bay, a full-service restaurant and bar that expects to fill the former El Guapo's space by March or April.

They made the journey to Milwaukee in early 2003, on scholarships to play soccer and study at Cardinal Stritch University, in a group of five. It was in…
