I love Restaurant Week. It's a smidge of an addiction. I'll book 3-5 ressies each of the weeks, and more often than not, I'll go to all of them. I love a bargain, what can I say?
Toro is the BEST deal for Restaurant Week.
1. You order off the real menu. No scraping the bottom of the freezer case, just cuz it's cheapo week. The ENTIRE menu, too. Not just these 4 options. The whole. Darn. Thing.
2. The more people you go with, the more tapas you order. Go with a group of 3? Choose 1 app, 8 tapas, 1 dessert each. I was with a party of 5, I think we got something insane like 18 choices. Whatever it was, we were rolling out of there.
3. Fanastic wine list. Try something crazy. Also, the waitstaff is really helpful in this regard.
4. The food is amazing. Ken Oringer doesn't mess around. I endorse the ""weird stuff"", aka tripe, beef heart, etc. Weird stuff is good, especially in tapas. Give it a try. Short list of faves: Ham-wrapped dates; corazon a la plancha; corn on the cob with aioli & cotija; Lengua with lentils... I really could go on and on.
One bummer... there's usually a wait, even with a ressie. But once you're seated, it doesn't really matter.
Pros: The food
Cons: The wait
