Toro Toro Renovations Start Downtown


It was almost exactly a year ago that we first learned Toro Toro from Chef Richard Sandoval was coming to 1300 I Street, NW. Now Washington Business Journal reports a new permit posted for:

“Interior renovations to 9,230 square feet on the first floor and basement level for the new, 240-seat restaurant Toro Toro.”

Toro Toro is a Richard Sandoval restaurant:

Toro Toro is a creative blend of Pan Latin styles and flavors. Chef-owner Richard Sandoval, whose accolades include Bon Appétit Restaurateur of the Year and Mexico’s Toque d’Oro, artfully spins South and Central American ingredients into small plates designed for sharing.

The beverage menu features innovative, hand-muddled cocktails, a collection of Latin wines and a variety of sugarcane spirits, which may be sipped at the Rum and Cachaca Bars. The vibrant décor fuses traditional and contemporary tastes, the perfect setting to savor Chef Richard Sandoval’s acclaimed cuisine.
