Toro is a busy tapas restaurant— and yes, we tend to have a very long wait—but you can’t look at the experience of coming to Toro Bravo as starting when you take your seat. It starts when you arrive at the restaurant. If you do it right, you go to the standing table while you wait to be seated, you get some sangria, have some drinks, and order some tapas. Eventually you move to a table and continue to eat, drink, and enjoy yourself. In Spain and at Toro Bravo, it’s not just about being seated and having dinner.
33 THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE PD DX Toro Bravo When I moved to Portland in 2001, I knew a few people in town—some friends from Eugene, and a few cooks from the Bay Area—but that wasn’t why I chose it. I moved to Portland because I felt it was ripe for the picking. When I was cooking in Eugene and in the Bay Area, all my pigs, all my lamb, all my mushrooms, and a lot of my produce was coming from Portland. The farmers up here, I knew, were leading the way. And I knew that because there were such amazing products available all the time, chefs would eventually take notice and come here to be a part of it.
The building was an old warehouse, and we built a really cool kitchen in the basement. By the time we were fully loaded and turning out meals, a lot of chefs in town wanted to guest chef there. The only rule I had with other chefs when collaborating on those dinners was that they could not cook what they made for Simpatica at their own restaurants. Simpatica was a big experiment in pushing our limits as cooks—in finding out what other things we were interested in learning about and getting out of The Pink House Ben and I met in Eugene.
