Toro Toro Pan-Latin Restaurant & Lounge by internationally acclaimed Chef Richard Sandoval celebrates the vibrant flavors and convivial dining culture of Central and South America. 

The menu features classic and creative dishes inspired by Chef Sandoval’s Mexican heritage and regional travels. To start, fill your table with antojitos - fresh Mexican ceviches, Argentinean empanadas and anticuchos from Peru are among the selection. Main dishes showcase the exciting - and ongoing - evolution of Latin cuisine. Traditional Coconut Adobo Chicken is served alongside contemporary Chaufa Fried Rice and Nikkei-Style Tostadas de Pescado, influenced by the vibrant communities of Chinese and Japanese immigrants across South America. Gaucho-grilled steaks, chicken and seafood served with Pan-Latin sauces round out the offerings.

 In local tradition, all of our dishes may be shared. Taste many with our Menu de la Familia – unlimited antojitos served family-style until your party says no mas!

 Fresh salads are offered at lunch, along with tortas and the signature Toro Toro Burger.  Join us for weekend bottomless brunch - with endless fun, flavorful dishes such as Arepas Eggs Benedict, Fried Chicken ‘n Corn Masa Waffles and Dulce de Leche French Toast. Wash it all down with bottomless mimosas, bloody marys and margaritas.

 Mojitos, Margaritas and other classic Latin cocktails are muddled with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs at Toro’s lively bar and downstairs lounge. The best Happy Hour in DC can be found at our bar & patio on weekdays from 3-7PM.

 Salud y buen provecho!





“This upscale Latin restaurant stacks its braised short rib arepas with hoisin sauce, achiote, guacamole, serrano peppers and crema. Snag the arepa with the express lunch or on its own during dinner.” -Eater DC

Best bets at the dim restaurant, complete with attractive an onyx bar, include huevos rancheros, sweet corn-stuffed empanadas, and bacon drizzled with chipotle agave honey and spiced sugar. The deal is pretty sweet: $39 for endless cocktails and food with a two-hour limit. It runs all the way until 5 p.m. “ -Eater DC
