Make sure you leave room for dessert.
A graffiti image of an enormous black bull stares down diners at the fittingly named The Black Toro. Mixing Spanish cuisine with Mexican street food, the menu here consists of share plates split into 'poco' (small) and 'grande' (large) serving sizes. Standout dishes include oysters with apple and tequila mignonette, mezcal cured salmon with coriander meringue, and soft shell tacos packed with crab or spicy pulled pork. You'll be tempted to stuff yourself with curly fries, which come with chipotle mayo, but whatever you do make sure you leave room for dessert. You can try caramel flan, coconut pannacotta, chocolate brownie with salted caramel and popcorn, or a deconstructed peanut butter cheesecake. Or, if making decisions isn't really your thing, combine a bit of everything with their dessert tasting plate.
