Best of Boston

2007 Best Spanish Restaurant


Although the distinctly un-Spanish corn on the cob is one of the most popular orders at this glamorous shrine to tapas, Toro shows its true genius with more authentic fare, turning out perfect potato omelets, salt cod croquettes, and cured jamón serrano. Each dish is a masterpiece, and even the most jaded gluttons will be in awe of the decadent foie gras with ginger, pickled cherries, and white nectarines. Skip the sangria for a glass of dry sherry, and embrace the jaleo—noisy crowds are as Spanish as garlic and olive oil.
