PLAZA DEL TORO


a gastronomic society

PLAZA DEL TORO is a private event space, gastronomic society, and modern test kitchen in Portland, Oregon’s Central Eastside Industrial District created by restaurateur John Gorham. He envisioned a space where he and his staff could have unconstrained culinary creativity as they develop new recipes for the restaurants, as well as experiment with new and innovative dinner concepts inspired by the legendary Portland supper club that Gorham founded, Simpatica, and the gastronomic societies of San Sebastian, Spain.
