Heirloom Tomato Specials

The day of the tomato is slowly coming to an end... this year. It's funny to hear employees who complain that they're tired of the tomato season, but everyone always misses them when they're gone!

Just a reminder to everyone that heirloom tomatoes are still here! The seasonal window is closing, and many of our dishes are featuring these delicacies! One of our top sellers has been our heirloom tomato flatbread. We spread fresh, creamy goat cheese on a crusty and flaky flatbread with sliced heirloom tomatoes, roasted garlic and a sprinkle of basil, which surprisingly is a key ingredient that rounds out the whole dish.

We're also serving a fresh caprese salad. This appetizer - or entree - is a simple dish of house made, pulled mozzarella cheese and freshly sliced heirloom tomatoes with roasted garlic and a balsamic creme sauce. Ray seriously swears by this dish.

You can also find heirlooms in a tomato sauce base for our Italian tuna with bucatini pasta entree. This is a Mediterranean-inspired dish that is hearty tasting but easy on the palate. As always, we want everyone to know we're always open to buying fresh garden tomatoes or produce that we can feature on our menu. We pride ourselves on using local items when they're available.

Come and experience the seasonal heirloom tomato... take your pick of several choices while you still can!

  1. I had the caprese salad with yellow tomatoes earlier this week. It was excellent!
