Don't Go Here: Toro

Let me tell you about a place we DIDN'T go...

Toro. This wack sauce establishment was billed as the best brunch in Boston. We roll at about 2 p.m. on a Saturday. They're closed. The staff is having a meeting. They tell us they only do brunch on Sunday. Word.

We come back at about 2 p.m. on Sunday. They're open... for a Mardi Gras party. Nevermind the fact that Mardi Gras was over TWO WEEKS PRIOR, but it costs $50 to get in plus a cash bar... WHO SPENDS $50 ON LUNCH without even drinking? Please tell me.

Also, the lady recognized that we came the day prior and says the four of us can get in for $150. WHO SPENDS $37.50 + tax on lunch WITH NO LIQUOR? Duffy's Chicago. $22.95... all you can eat and drink (well, at least it used to be... I digress). Perhaps as the ENTIRE staff of the place was assembled for a meeting it would occur to SOMEONE to say "we only have brunch on Sundays... BUT, not tomorrow." I name them team Goof Troop.

So yeah, don't go to Toro. Their hours suck. Their customer service sucks. Their prices suck. I can't imagine the food was that much better. But if you must... just phone first.
