Suited for social gatherings from individually plated, family-style, cocktail receptions, networking functions, luncheons, brunches, wine tastings, and holiday events.
PLAZA DEL TORO is a private event space, gastronomic society, and modern test kitchen in Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District created by restaurateur John Gorham, chef/owner of Portland’s celebrated Toro Bravo, Tasty n Daughters, Tasty n Alder, Mediterranean Exploration Company (MEC), Shalom Y’all, and BYH Burgers. Gorham envisioned a space where he and his staff could have unconstrained culinary creativity as they develop new recipes for his properties, as well as experiment with new and innovative dinner concepts inspired by the legendary Portland supper club that Gorham founded, Simpatica, and the gastronomic societies of San Sebastian, Spain.
The beautiful space can accommodate events of all kinds from a large-scale dinner for 120 guests to a cocktail party for 200 and a private Boardroom space that seats up to 20 guests comfortably with A/V. The beautifully renovated industrial space features an oyster bar, a professional DJ booth, open-view kitchen and floor-to-ceiling windows that open. The kitchen boasts a large Combi oven and a six-foot grill with whole animal rotisserie inspired by Getaria, the mesquite grilling capital of Spain.
