Toro Bravo Celebrates 10 Years with Remodel and Open House Party

Toro Bravo Celebrates 10 Years with Remodel and Open House Party

Toro Bravo would like to extend our gratitude to the Portland community for the support and patronage over the last ten years. We have gone from a Spanish-inspired restaurant to an institution that incorporates cuisines from all of the regions of Spain influenced by our many travels throughout the years that have inspired us.
 

We look forward to welcoming our guests into our newly remodeled, gaucho-inspired dining room, featuring new leather banquets, more comfortable seating, noise reduction, and a completely updated kitchen line with state of the art equipment such as planchas and a Josper oven. The alcove room (aka “the make-out room”) has been redesigned for an intimate face-to-face dining experience.


Look for updated menu items, an expanded sherry menu and wine list with a “From the Vault” section featuring rare and unusual wines from around the world with a focus on Spanish and Portuguese wines.

Executive Chef / Co-Owner Kasey Mills says: 

"We saw this opportunity to bring a more character to the Shalom Y’all concept and give our guests a more detailed experience that feels more like Israel. 

The menu is going to change more frequently. You’ll be seeing  more new menu items, more often, with a bigger approach toward salads.
