    Show up about 40 minutes before you want to eat, because unless it’s 5:30 on a Monday, you’re going to wait. Luckily, that’s just enough time to order and drink one of Toro’s excellent cocktails. Read more

    Bar with amazing tapas. The #1 tapas plate is the grilled corn. Sounds simple, but it's quite the opposite!

    Make sure to try the decadent maiz asado, corn smothered in ailoli, lime, espelette pepper and aged cheese. This isn’t your abuela’s corn-on-the-cob.

    I can't say half of the items on the menu, nor do I know what they are. What I do know is that it was delicious. I live right near here and this will definitely be a spot I frequent for cocktails and

    Toro offers a brunch-only cocktail called the Tailpipe; a blend of potassium-rich banana milk and Old Monk rum to take the edge off any hangover. What's more, it's delicious. Drink!

    The corn is amazing. Like cheesy grilled popcorn. Tuna tartare ia very well done. Jamon blanco is quite flavorful. Im not quite sold on the bone marrow but the flat bread that comes with it is good.
