Celebrate Dia de los Muertos at Toro Toro with Exclusive Menu

Chef Richard Sandoval Launches Dia de Los Muertos Campaign

Toro Toro Dia de los Muertos Chili Ancho Confit

Toro Toro, celebrated chef/restaurateur Richard Sandoval’s Pan-Latin steakhouse, is honoring Día De Los Muertos, or “Day of the Dead,” a festival originating from Mexico that unfolds in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy aimed at demonstrating love and respect for the past while setting intentions for the future. As part of Richard Sandoval Hospitality’s first-ever immersive global campaign honoring the Day of the Dead, guests will have the opportunity to partake in the multi-sensory celebration at Toro Toro highlighting elements of taste through marigold-inspired food and drink specials; sound, with a Spotify Latin-music playlist curated by Paco Rozas and Christophe Bourlon; smell, with a marigold-infused custom candle; and sight, with visuals and a grand Altar de Muertos or “Altar of the Dead” on display at the restaurant. As part of the month-long campaign, Toro Toro will be featuring an exclusive a la carte menu inspired by Altar de Muertos and marigold notes, including Chile Ancho Confit, pork belly stew served with star anise, sweet plantain, almonds, and mole rosa ($20); Braised Short Rib served with orange blossom purée, espadin-mezcal sauce, baby patipan and sun-dried chili ash ($48); and Pumpkin Bread Cake with caramel “tacha” pumpkin, orange blossom milk, spiced pepitas and cinnamon ice cream for dessert ($16).
