Part of JK Food Group by Ken Oringer

Toro is a Barcelona-style tapas restaurant located in Boston’s South End. We serve traditional and modern Spanish-style small plates made with locally sourced and sustainable ingredients. Our beverage program features classic-inspired cocktails and an eclectic, carefully curated wine list. We serve lunch Monday through Friday, a Sunday brunch, and dinner seven nights a week. Due to our small size we are unable to accommodate reservations at dinner; we seat all parties on a first-come, first serve basis. Toro is now accepting lunch and brunch reservations for parties of six or more. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate parties larger than 10 people on Fridays and Saturdays.
