Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette’s Toro Recon Mission

Mushrooms at Toro New York

Before opening the New York offshoot of their hit Boston tapas joint, Toro, co-chefs and empire builders Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette embarked on a food-and-drink-filled research trip through Barcelona and San Sebastián. Their Spanish exploits influenced dishes now being served at the cavernous new Chelsea location, like setas (left): luscious plancha-cooked mushrooms with a farm egg yolk, olive oil and parsley. The prepartion is inspired by a simple plate of cèpes (porcini) at one of Oringer's favorite restaurants in San Sebastián. Here, the chefs reveal more exclusive highlights from their itinerary in Chef Dream Trips: Spain.

Toro, 15th St. at Eleventh Ave., 212-691-2360; toro-nyc.com and @toronyc on Twitter.

Editors Picks: Vintage Dom Perignon, Negronis To-Go

Caviar & Bubbles in Las Vegas

Vintage Dom Perignon: Associate multimedia editor James Pomerantz lived it up at the Food & Wine All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas over the weekend with 2003 Dom Perignon brut and caviar-topped sushi.

Best Value Port: Senior digital editor Lawrence Marcus took respectable 3 p.m. break to taste selections from port wine revolutionary Dirk Niepoort. See the results here.

Martini with a Twist: At Old Homestead in New York, executive wine editor Ray Isle started his steak dinner with a crystal-clear martini with a twist of lemon.

Negroni To-Go: Even though it was served in a plastic cup, I still enjoyed Tooker Alley’s Crown Heights Negroni at the second annual Brooklyn Shaken & Stirred competition.
