A convivial mix of cultures results in a lively and lengthy selection of robust foods and festive libations from Mexico and Cuba. Executive Chef Dean Diaz-Albertini, the next-gen member of the family that owns and operates Casa Toro, continually invigorates the menu with new tastes. A recently introduced Jefe Menu of rotating small plates offered at the sociable bar includes Tinga Eggrolls, Mexican Shrimp Cocktail, and Cuban accented Jefe Tacos, two soft corn tortillas packed with tender lechon asado – pork slow-roasted in a citrusy Mojo marinade – with bright pickled onion and jalapeño piled on top. Cilantro and queso fresco complete these enticing bites. The Jefe Menu will also be offered outdoors when patios at both locales are open.
Classics like enchiladas, burritos, and chimichangas abound, along with an array of scratch-made sauces including authentic mole and fiery tomatillo-habanero. Cuban specialties include Paella (see pg. 72) and Caribbean Red Snapper. The chef – he’s the “Jefe,” aka boss – pushes culinary boundaries with fusion preparations that remake eclectic dishes in a Latin context. One tasty original returning to the winter menu is Pollo Colorado, chicken tenderloin stuffed with veggies, then rolled and braised in a creamy tequila-chipotle sauce. Chile Acapulco, a crisply breaded and fried poblano pepper stuffed with a creamy chipotle seafood medley, makes a seasonal debut.
More than 50 kinds of tequila, offering premium sipping, are mixed into masterful margaritas while a variety of rums star in splashy mojitos. Also look for seasonal feature drinks and plentiful beers. Happy hour is observed throughout the restaurants, and both places include a Mojito Bay Lounge for a more refined and relaxed experience.
The full regular menu is available for take-out or delivery via DoorDash. Expanded catering options feature popular build-your-own taco bars, fajita platters and lots more. A weekly newsletter keeps fans in the loop, and a Loyalty Rewards Program makes regular visits even more tempting. Follow Casa Toro on Facebook and Instagram.
