Toro Bravo is a Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant in NE Portland, Oregon created by restaurateur chef John Gorham. The menu of Pinchos, Tapas, Charcuteria, and Raciones changes daily based on seasonal variations, local farmers' produce, and the kitchen crew's inspiration, incorporating elements of modern technique and unexpected flavors into classic Spanish cuisine. The beverage program focuses on both the Pacific Northwest and Spain with wine, beer, imaginative cocktails and a large selection of sherry. The open dining room of wood and industrial accents and sangria red walls helps create the lively and vibrant atmosphere that has secured Toro Bravo as one of Portland’s favorite restaurants since opening in 2007. In 2013, Gorham released The Toro Bravo Cookbook brimming with irreverent stories and nearly a hundred Spanish-inspired recipes, which has since been venerated by chefs, home cooks, and national media alike.
