“Torino brings the tasting menu to a city near us”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We have tried this concept in a variety of places, most recently at WD50 in New York, but Torino does it as well as any. A series of well-prepared and inventive dishes are produced, followed by a small dessert. Wines and other drinks are also available. At $60/person this is a real bargain compared with some of the others,e.g., the French Laundry. Definitely a place to keep in mind.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We went to Torino for dinner based upon a recommendation of a friend. When you arrive the wait staff explains the concept of the food and drink menu. The food menu is set each week, and you have no choice except to pick 3 or 5 courses. We picked the five courses, and if you are hungry I would pick this because the dishes are not large. You also have an option to order a wine flight to match your dishes. Our waitress told us that it equated to 3.5 glasses of wine so we just ordered a cocktail each which were very good. We really enjoyed all of the food. The courses were creative and tasty. They were brought at a nice pace that allowed us to enjoy conversation. At the end of the meal they brought out very good coffee. We will definitely be back.
