Toro, located in Boston
's South End district, is a little slice of Barcelona
in the Northeast. The menu is based on small plates (tapas), and while the ingredients are regionally sourced, the wine list is all Spanish, giving Toro a nice mixture of local atmosphere and international appeal. Also, though the standard menu has a traditionally Spanish emphasis on meats and fresh seafood, there are also vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and nut-free options.
