Toro Toro, the Pan-Latin steakhouse located inside the InterContinental in Downtown Miami, will be starting the holiday season early this year with a ticketed Friendsgiving dinner hosted and prepared by the acclaimed Chef/Owner Richard Sandoval, as well as a specialty Friendsgiving menu that will be offered for the whole month of November. Taking place on Thursday, November 14 at 7 PM, the one-night-only, 30-person dinner will transform Toro Toro’s striking Matador Room into an intimate dining experience that will serve as an exclusive celebration of the season. Priced at $75 per person (excluding tax 

and gratuity), tickets will include a welcome cocktail in the restaurant’s lounge upon arrival, followed by a 3-course family-style meal with respective wine pairings. In the spirit of Friendsgiving and connecting with each other, Chef Sandoval, who will be preparing the meal for the evening, will interact with and explain the dishes to guests as the table is served. The menu for the event will begin with appetizers including Apple & Carrot Curry Soup; Baby Beet Salad with baby kale, green beans, and Stracciatella; Pork Belly with cornbread and carrots; and Kabocha Squash with mushrooms, truffle aioli, and Parmigiano. For the main course, Chef Sandoval will be preparing a traditional Roasted Turkey with a Pan-Latin twist as it will be served with sweet potato bravas, jalapeño honey butter, and kimchi Brussels sprouts. Additional entrées will include Achiote Chicken with Arroz con gandules, piquillo peppers, tostones and cilantro sauce; and Pork Pernil with mashed yuca, chicharron, and red onion mojo. A sweet ending to the night will feature desserts such as Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie and Maduros Cream Pie.

 

In addition to the special event, Toro Toro will also be offering Chef Sandoval’s specialty Friendsgiving menu as a private dining option for the entire month of November. Priced at $75 per person and available for parties of 14 or more, it is a great alternative for groups who prefer to sit back, socialize and spend quality time with friends over an exquisite meal, without the time and effort of preparation, cooking and cleaning. For this experience, room rental fees are waived and groups have the option of hosting the dinner in Table 40, Toro Toro’s unique in-kitchen dining room; Matador Room, the restaurant’s large private dining room; or in any section of the restaurant desired.

 

On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, Toro Toro will offer a buffet-style “Thanksgiving con Sabor Latino” from 11 AM until 8 PM. Priced at $65 for adults; $30 for children 6 to 12 years old; and free for children under 5, the buffet will feature assorted salads, charcuterie, fresh seafood, a live carving station, hot items, and a decadent dessert display.
