Though Toro Toro is located in the lobby of the newly renovated InterContinental Miami, don't think of this as a hotel restaurant; think of this as a restaurant that happens to be located in a hotel. Renowned Chef Richard Sandoval, who runs 34 establishments, including the nearby Kokoriko Natural Rotisserie, modeled this interpretation of a Pan-Latin steakhouse after his successful Toro Toro Dubai. The Mexico City native, who calls Miami one of his favorite cities, offers a great variety of small plates, ranging from ceviche nikkei (Peruvian-Japanese style) with ahi tuna, sweet potato, cucumber and quinoa to arepas with short ribs, guacamole and crema. The churrascaria and grill offers a number of cuts of meat and poultry, a few of which--like the small plates--can be shared family style, such as the "rodizio experience." If you prefer to dine a la carte, larger main dishes include several cuts of beef, achiote barbecued salmon and pan-roasted Florida grouper. Wash it all down with a specialty cocktail such as the "Ring My bell," made with Herradura Reposado Tequila, Cointreau, lime, bell pepper and rosemary. A well-informed staff is on hand to decipher more difficult menu items and drinks, but you don't need them to understand this: Dessert. Churros. Yum.
