Fort Myers, Adios Toro and the return of Bacchus

LilMsFoodie Apr 9, 2008 10:35 AM

Toro, a sort of tapas bar at Bell Tower, didn't last long and has closed and Shannon Yates has returned with his original Bacchus concept and has brought the same cooks. I had lunch yesterday and was quite happy to see the old faces. Hopefully it will remain true to its origins and not try to be Cru II. Bacchus had the best success in this place and only closed when Shannon went to open Cru.

I had a nice panini with grilled zucchini, mushrooms, pesto and lightly dressed greens. A good Albarino was a little pricey at $11 but the lunch came in at $20 plus tip.

    I am really sad to hear that Toro closed. I actually really enjoyed that restaurant. However, I'm excited to try Bacchus. Thanks for the update!

        It would be hard for me to have had lunch there if it were not open. It opened late March or early April.
