NOW PLAYING: Balance and Power – Acclaimed Chef Ken Oringer Demonstrates a Strawberry Margarita Gazpacho
Ken Oringer In 1997 Oringer opened Clio, which quickly received a four-star rating from the Boston Herald. In 2001 he was the recipient of the James Beard "Best Chef in the Northeast" award. In 2002, Oringer added the sashimi bar, Uni, to Clio's lounge, giving himself a new venue for the love of Asian flavors acquired during his travels all over Southeast Asia. In 2005, Oringer opened Toro, a Barcelona-inspired tapas restaurant in Boston's South End, drawing inspiration from his travels across Spain and time spent in the local markets and restaurants. When the confetti settles from Toro's celebrated opening, Oringer will take on another exciting project further afield, in Bangkok.
