Still, Meagher, who has lunched at Toro Toro a half dozen times since it opened, gives the restaurant a thumb's up, calling the staff friendly and knowledgeable, the food good, the portions large and the prices reasonable. He usually orders the ceviche or Toro Toro burger.
Will Toro Toro became downtown Miami's newest power lunch spot? It's too early to say, Meagher said.
"I haven't seen a lot of people there yet," he said. "It's not yet known. And there's a lot of competition out there now."
"At this point, I think they're trading more on the hotel business than as a power lunch spot."
