I wanted to see what else he had up his sleeve. Tommy Habetz of Bunk Bar, formerly of Ripe Family Supper and Gotham Tavern, cooked Mexican food with us; Andy Ricker of Pok Pok did Peruvian food. We never wanted to get stuck in a rut with the same style dinners. Travel fueled us too. Those dinners got attention from some TV folks. We were asked to do a PBS show called Endless Feast. The show itself wasn’t very good, but they flew us to farms all over the country to host farm-to-table dinners. If I went to Boston, I’d come back and do a northeastern dinner at Simpatica.
We’d been handwriting tickets for weeks, which was ridiculous. Servers would handwrite every new item with one copy for the table, one for their records, and one for the kitchen. Let’s just say there were a lot of lost orders. 41 Toro Bravo BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY We mined our resources pretty heavily. When you’re putting together a restaurant on a tight budget, you have to be scrappy and at times pretty fucking opportunistic. We couldn’t afford designers or architects, but that didn’t stop me from calling up every restaurant designer and architect I knew and asking them to meet with me.
The opening staff was just Kasey Mills, Ryan Bleibtrey, Ben Meyer, Ron Avni, and me. Toro’s menu was pretty small at first—especially compared to what it is now. We had the Coppa Steak (page 192), Scallops (page 202), Potatoes Bravas (page 136), Lamb Ragu with Eggplant (page 230), Fried Anchovies (page 130), Salt Cod Fritters (page 124), Radicchio Salad (page 116), Sherry Chicken-Liver Mousse (page 174), and the Bacon Manchego Burger (page 240). But we made our own charcuterie, brined everything ourselves, and processed so much every day.
