 Loro is an Asian smokehouse and bar brought to you by James Beard Award winners
Chef Tyson Cole of Uchi and Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue. As Texas Monthly barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn put it in a first-look article, “both chefs had to look in new directions to work together.”
He goes on to quote Aaron Franklin, “‘Everything on the table should be able to complement each other.’
If that’s the goal, Loro is off to a good start.”
