In this era of jet-fresh vegetables – when your dinner may have more frequent flier miles than you do – there are precious few reminders of seasonality. The tomato is one of them. An out-of-season tomato simply isn’t as good as a sun-soaked summer beauty, and we all know it. Heirloom tomatoes are the best of the best. These varieties, passed down through the generations because of their great taste, are what we wait for every summer.
During the month of August, the height of the season, our restaurants will feature tomatoes all over the menu. Items like Sliced HeirloomTomatoes with Grilled Tomato Vinaigrette, Goat Cheese Fritters and Pickled Corn; Fried Green Tomatoes with Fresh Mozzarella and Spicy Crab Rémoulade and Country Tomato Soup with Parmesan-Caper Crostin.
Our tomatoes come from local farms with names as colorful as the tomatoes themselves: Full Belly, Ella Bella and Mariquita, to name a few. Be sure to visit your favorite restaurants this month and celebrate the freshest and best of this season.
