Toro-new Barcelona style tapas

UES Mayor | Sep 24, 201301:14 AM

Went to this newly open place last night located next to Colicchio & Sons at 85 Tenth Ave. The entrance is located on the far western side of building next to highway.It is a rather large space with bar seating, table seating and a seperate chef's bar tasting area. I went because Toro is one of my faves in Boston and it did not dissappoint. Started w thier corn on the cob all smother w savory goodness-grilled corn slathered with mayonnaise and loaded with cayenne pepper, then rolledg it in Cotija cheese w lime juice. I could make a meal with this alone. This was followed by Escalivada-a smokey eggplant dish w tomato base that I piled on bread and devoured. A deviled egg dish that was topped w tuna belly was a nice treat prior to my tripe dish. I thought tripe was extremely well seasoned-I only wish there was more chunky pieces of tripe in it which is the way I enjoy tripe. Had a spicy glass of a red wine called J Foraster whiched paired very well w the meal. Service was great and well organized even though it is newly opened. I went very early so I don't know how crowded it got but I suspect it will certainly be hard to get in or at least always busy as soon as people find out how great this place is.
