Best of Boston

2019 Best Spanish Restaurant


Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette have since added Toros in New York City, Bangkok, and Dubai, but a night out where it all began is as fun as ever. That’s thanks to Spanish wines that flow like water, sizzling garlic shrimp and crisp patatas bravas that grace nearly every table, and nostalgic tunes from the likes of the Beastie Boys and Lil’ Kim that keep spirits high (and conversations interesting) all night long. Please allow the requested 30 minutes for the top-notch paella Valenciana, packed with shellfish, sausage, and chicken—it’s worth the wait.
