Venue Info

At Pollo Bravo, tucked into Pine Street Market, there's a secret to the namesake chicken: it's marinated in carrot juice. John Gorham, of Toro Bravo, learned the trick from an elderly street vendor during his many trips to Madrid, and it's become the inspiration for his Spanish-Mexican tapas spot. Tapas portions encourage you to slow down and savor the flavor, and there's plenty in a plate of skewers sporting chroizo-wrapped manchego, anchovies, olives and pickled peppers. Pork loin sandwiches and rotisserie chicken (with that special carrot marinade) provide more substantial dining options, which you may need after cocktails at the 17-seat bar.
