Food & Drink


2015 Winner: Toro

The South End’s oldest Spanish joint is painfully, raucously crowded from the moment it opens for dinner to nearly the end of service every night, with no reservations. Why do stubborn crowds continue to endure long waits and much jostling in close quarters? Because Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette’s creative, beautiful, impeccably sourced take on Barcelona tapas and other treats like Mexican elotes is just plain worth the aggravation. Be patient, have a glass of red and keep your elbows in.
