Fort Myers, Adios Toro and the return of Bacchus
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.
