The team behind Toro and Willow Road have opened a secret bar in the backroom of Toro but no place is a secret once Lindsay Lohan starts drinking there. While Backbar isn't actually a part of the restaurant, it's the "unofficial Toro clubhouse," where "well-known food writers mingle" and Toro's beverage director, Caitlin Doonan, makes cocktails. There's no signage, of course, and you enter through two steel doors west of Del Posto. Now you know.
