Dos Toros, a fast-casual restaurant known for NorCal–inspired Taqueria cuisine, has signed a lease with Columbia University to join the Morningside Heights neighborhood.
The new Dos Toros will open this fall at 2911 Broadway, between 113th and 114th StreetS (pictured top).
Jones Lang LaSalle’s Amy Zhen, Davie Berke, Claire Smith, and Patrick Smith brokered the deal on behalf of Columbia, and SRS Real Estate’s Mark Tedeschi and Adam Langer represented Dos Toros.
The New York City-based eatery was founded in 2009 by brothers Leo and Oliver Kremer and opened its first location near Union Square. The brand has since expanded to over 20 locations in New York City and Chicago.
Committed to sustainable practices, Dos Toros composts kitchen food waste, plates, utensils, cups, straws, and napkins, and uses tables made from reclaimed wood.
Columbia University owns and manages retail space across the Morningside and Manhattanville campuses, and its long-standing retail approach favors businesses like Dos Toros that bring a variety of amenities and experiences to the Columbia campus, the wider local community and visitors.
The new Dos Toros location joins Elysian Fields Café, e’s BAR, and Wu and Nussbaum as other Columbia University retail tenants to have opened or signed in the Morningside Heights neighborhood this year.
