Co-Chef/Owners Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette opened TORO NYC in the iconic former Nabisco Factory. At South Chelsea’s incarnation of Boston’s Barcelona-style tapas bar, chefs Oringer and Bissonnette feature an eclectic menu of modern tapas that combine regional Spanish flavors and techniques with local and market-fresh ingredients.
The Mixology-driven cocktail menu features a section dedicated to Spain’s drink of choice: the Gin Tonic. The wine program also emphasizes Spain, highlighting emerging producers and growers alongside iconic winemakers and brands. An ongoing calendar of events is hosted by our beverage director, including master classes, guest bartender nights, and wine tasting opportunities provided to both our staff and the public.
The 120-seat dining room channels the spirit of Barcelona's lively tapas bars and features a mix of both industrial and refined elements. With nods to the building's history as a factory as well as capturing the surrounding cityscape through expansive 18-foot windows, the space invites you to either dine with friends or enjoy a cocktail and quick bite at the sleek bar or busy plancha. And if you're really curious, order a porron off the wall guarded by the head of our well-fought Spanish bull.
Toro features Barcelona-inspired hot and cold small plates, designed to be served and enjoyed tapas-style.
