Dos Toros Taqueria Opening Location Near Columbia

Dos Toros, a Northern California-inspired Taqueria chain, is joining the plethora of restaurants of the Morningside Heights community. Specializing in fast-casual Mexican food comparable to Chipotle, Dos Toros will be taking over the space that used to belong to Amir’s at 2911 Broadway – between 113th and 114th streets. They will be serving customizable, build-your-own burritos, burrito bowls, salads, tacos, quesadillas, and nachos.

Dos Toros started in 2009, founded by brothers Leo and Oliver Kremer, Bay Area transplants who were disappointed in the quality of burritos in New York City. After first opening near Union Square, Dos Toros now boasts over 20 locations in New York City and Chicago.

Unlike many chains, staying environmentally conscious is a priority for Dos Toros. Not only do they use 100 percent naturally raised meats, Dos Toros is also adamant on sustainable practices. They compost their kitchen food waste, plates, utensils, cups, straws, napkins, and use tables made of compost wood, along with cashless payment systems. Their food is also health-conscious – they list all their calories on their menu and cater to dietary restrictions. Specific nutrition facts can be found on the menu on their website.

Columbia University, the landlord for the retail lease, and Dos Toros have not provided any specific date for the opening, although it has been projected to be in the fall. Dos Toros will be joining many new businesses in Morningside Heights this year – including e’s BAR, Elysian Fields, Wu & Nussbaum, and more.

    @Anonymous Don’t eat the limes that come with the tacos. They look nice, but they don’t taste good.
