Chef Richard Sandoval to open a modern Latin steakhouse in Fort Worth


Doubters continue to question whether Dallas “needs” more steakhouses. (My answer is that there’s always room for another good one, since Dallas is the King of Steakhouse Cities.)

Now steakhouse chefs are feeling the itch in Fort Worth.

Richard Sandoval, a chef well known for his take on modern Mexican cuisine, says he’s teaming up with the owners of the Worthington Renaissance Hotel in downtown Fort Worth to open Toro Toro Pan Latin Steakhouse and Lounge this fall. Sandoval’s hospitality group operates 45 restaurants, including a Toro Toro steakhouse in Miami, Live Oak in Austin, and Maya in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

“We saw a tremendous opportunity to bring Richard’s award-winning restaurant to Fort Worth as it has recently been named the 13th most populous city in the U.S. The timing is impeccable to also transform the arrival experience of The Worthington Hotel and create an enticing gathering spot with vibrant flavors and bold design which will further complement the new Dickies Arena opening and the array of marquee events during the fall/holiday season,” says Tom Healy, the Worthington’s owner group CEO.

Toro Toro’s menu will feature charcoal and wood grilled steaks and seafood and creative, shareable, small plates of ceviche, tiraditos, empanadas, and skewered meats.

“Toro Toro Fort Worth will be a destination fueled with Latin fire and passion that also embraces the city’s cowboy legacy, historic architecture, dynamic arts and entertainment scene, and toasts its champions of industry. I love Fort Worth’s pioneer spirit,” said Sandoval.

Toro Toro FW is expected to open in November.
