TAMPA, Fla. — For all the tequila lovers out there, Jotoro Kitchen + Tequila Bar offers margarita and agave flights to satisfy your taste buds.
Located at Sparkman Wharf, Jotoro (pronounced JOE-TORO) opened its doors in November 2020.
"Jotoro...it's a name we made up," said Joe Isidori, chef partner at the restaurant. "I'm Joe, 'toro's the bull—be the bull...We're high energy."
The restaurant offers Tex-Mex cuisine, a fun party vibe and an abundance of tequila options.
Some signature margarita flights include Fast & Furious (Mi Casa house margarita, Prickly Pear and Blue Wave margaritas) and Joe's Flight (Golden Margarita, Piña Colada, and a shot of Casamigos Reposado).
