Toro – No Bull

Pants at a Glance
  • scene: The hottest table in NYC right now, so prepare to fight your way to the bar and shout to your friends; High ceilings and big windows, but warm wood softens the industrial-style space
  • sip: House cocktails are offered (various concoctions with port, madeira, sherry, and gin - apparently it's popular now in Barcelona), but opt for sangria on tap or a Spanish Red from the fairly reasonable wine list
  • savor: Erizos Con Caviar, Setas, Ensalada Cortada, Lobster & Black Truffle Paella
  • sit: A table away from the bar is ideal for your eardrums, and a seat with a view of the open kitchen in back is even better
  • spend: $$$
  • address: 85 10th Avenue (entrance on 15th Street, right at 11th Ave)
