Ken Orginer has seven unique restaurants throughout Boston that span international cuisines, and now he is bringing Beantown’s favorite Barcelona-style tapas restaurant to New York City this fall.
Toro opened in Boston’s South End in 2005 and has been a big hit ever since. The restaurant has been recognized by Oprah magazine, Esquire, and The New York Times. According to The Times, “ [At Toro] The high bar stools at the communal table are the best seats to take in the action as you drink ... Caipirinhas with caramelized limes.”
Well, now New Yorkers will get to enjoy Oringer’s tapas and Spanish wine without making the trip to Boston. Toro is stated to open on 16th street and Tenth Avenue — in the same Nabisco factory as Del Posto and Colicchio & Sons. The new location with be similar to the Boston establishment, but with a unique take that can only compliment New York. So keep an eye out for the new addition to The Big Apple’s culinary scene.
