Toro Bravo is a Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant that is currently #17 on the pdxeater.com essential 38 Portland restaurants January 2014 list. Their meat is pasture-raised from local ranchers and their seafood is wild-caught, with the exception of octopus, clams and mussels, which are ocean-farmed locally. Their produce is from local farmers and their mushrooms and nettles are from local foragers. Their menu, an ancestral eater’s smorgasbord, changes daily, is based on seasonal variations, local farmers' produce, and the kitchen crew's inspiration. Our server can let us know which items on the menu are gluten and dairy free.
While you can certainly order only for yourself, the fun of tapas (i.e. small plates) is that each person orders two or three little dishes and then everyone at the table shares.
Note: Toro Bravo is mainly a walk-in restaurant (with a really long wait). However, they do make weeknight reservations at 5:00pm or 7:30pm for groups of seven or more. This reservation is under my name. Also, they only provide one check per table, so bringing cash might make splitting the bill at the end easier.
