Richard Sandoval’s Toro Toro asks: Have you ever been rodizio experienced?

Richard Sandoval may be D.C.'s king of all-you-can-eat: El Centro, Masa 14, Zengo and Ambar all feature a bottomless brunch, and Ambar recently debuted a bottomless small-plates dinner, too. But Toro Toro, his forthcoming pan-Latin steakhouse at 1300 I St. NW, might have one of his most decadent all-you-can-eat options yet: The $79 "Rodizio Experience" features unlimited skewers of seven types of meat, including Brazilian-style picanha steak carved tableside, as well as a flotilla of small plates. Better loosen your belt buckle March 31 opening.

Even if you forgo the rodizio, there's plenty to sink your teeth into here. You can have a traditional steakhouse experience at Toro Toro, where you choose your cut, from a filet mignon to a tomahawk rib-eye, with a starch and vegetable on the side. Or, you can go the small plates route: Toro Toro has nearly 30 small plates, ranging from seviche to the "Causa Toro Toro," a sushi-inspired dish made with a purple potato cake, tuna tartare, avocado and roasted sesame. Dishes on the small plates menu range from $8 to $16, while steaks and fish go for $33 to $65.

Inside, the restaurant's dark wood decor is accented with splashes of orange and tall-backed, animal-hair chairs. Head down the grand staircase and you'll find a long bar, DJ booth and tables for bottle service. This is Sandoval's third Toro Toro, joining locations in Miami and Dubai, and his sixth restaurant in D.C.

Toro Toro, 1300 I St. NW. 202-682-9500. Opening March 31.
