Toro to Open in New York City
A trendy tapas restaurant in the South End of Boston is going to be expanding, though its second location won't be anywhere near Beantown.
Zagat is reporting that the folks behind Toro (Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette) on Washington Street plan to open a new branch of the eatery in the Chelsea section of Manhattan, with a possible fall opening in the works. The post mentions that the new location of the tapas spot will be on 10th Avenue in the same space where the high-end restaurants Del Posto and Colicchio and Sons reside, making this section of Chelsea a mini "restaurant row" of sorts.
Toro is a Barcelona-style tapas place that features both traditional and modern Spanish-style small plates using locally sourced ingredients. Oringer and Bissonnette also run Coppa, a South End enoteca, while Oringer runs Clio, KO Prime, La Verdad, Uni, and Earth (which is in Kennebunkport, ME).
The address for this upcoming tapas restaurant in New York City will be: Toro, 85 10th Avenue, New York, NY, 10011. The website for the Boston location can be found at http://toro-restaurant.com/
