This might just be the best of both worlds.

Expensive hamburgers are nothing new.

February 16, 2006 - Boston.com - Alison Arnett, February 16, 2006

Ken Oringer, both revered and controversial in Boston culinary circles, took so long to open his new tapas bar that a frenzy of anticipation simmered from summer through the autumn and erupted into a full boil when winter hit.
All of this adds up to Toro — wildly popular, insanely crowded, ridiculously noisy. And tricky to write about.

Who needs the attitude?

We showed up as a party of three while the fourth person in our group was parking the car. The restaurant had a table for four available, as well as two separate tables each for two people. The hostess said she would seat us momentarily in the four-top, but asked us to wait while our fourth arrived. The couple behind us was seated to split the four-top (instead of in one of the available two-tops), thus making it impossible for us to be seated at a table. We sat at the bar and watched while the available three two-tops went unoccupied for the hour-and-a-half we were at the restaurant. What a drag. Ruined the evening for us. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Who needs the attitude?

Does it really deserve to be a top 25 restaurant

5 of us ventured there last week. Bar service was delightful. Sangria was good. Suggestions were helpful. All of us thought the food was solid - 2 rounds of 4 different tapas dishes - but no one really was blown over by any one dish. The small space is a bit uncomfortable but the crowd adds to the vibe. I would recommend a small party to go (much easier to sit 2 or 4) early to not have to wait in the crowd. I think the press and the hype of being a Ken restaurant had my expectations high so I was bit disappointed - that being said, the others in my party had never heard of the place and they said they would go back but not necessarily anytime soon.
