The brains behind Toro Toro Houston created an exciting destination for elevated dining in the Downtown area.

The restaurant name Toro Toro is a clever combination of the Japanese word for tuna (toro) and the Spanish word for bull (also, toro) – a nod to the dynamic menu which features a wide selection of seafood and steaks. Rooted in a celebration of the vibrant flavors and convivial dining culture of Central and South America, Toro Toro offers guests a twist on the contemporary steakhouse experience with Pan-Latin flavors from Rodizio-style Churrasco and creative shareable small plates.

Inspired by Latin traditions and the art of cooking with fire, the restaurant features an open kitchen with a wood-burning grill, meats presented and carved tableside, and family-style ceviches, tiraditos and antojitos. Exceptional beverage options will complement the bold flavors of each dish with an expansive wine list highlighting Latin wines and classic Latin cocktails – mojitos and margaritas, all hand-muddled with the freshest ingredients and artful garnishes.

A grand central bar and an elegant lounge creates a perfect meeting point for guests as they arrive, who may then gather in the main dining room, flanked by fluted plaster columns and an inviting steel-clad fireplace. Hugged by soft drapery, the dining room is also marked by elegant glass and steel vitrines, which exhibits evolving displays of greenery or seasonal fare. An open kitchen also creates a fun and lively focal point inspired by the passion, sounds, smells and energy of Latin America.
