2014 Winner: Toro

Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer took Toro to Manhattan last year, gambling that one of Boston’s most successful restaurants could woo New Yorkers notoriously averse to carpetbaggers. Surprise: Toro V2.0 is a flaming success, but hasn’t diffused the South End original’s winning formula of swoony Barcelona-inspired tapas, great wines and cocktails, and service that somehow maintains its aplomb amid a never-abating throng. Please, please check out Toro NYC soon; we’d love just a little more room to squeeze in at the bar here.
