Ingredient of the Month: Heirloom Tomatoes

August 15, 2014

If you’ve dined on our patio this summer, you’ve more than likely noticed our colorful tomatoes growing in the patio garden. We specifically chose to grow heirloom tomatoes. The difference? Flavor! Heirloom tomatoes have a sweet, tangy flavor. More specifically, heirloom refers to the fact that the seeds have been passed down from gardener to gardener, for generations in some cases, unlike modern hybrid varieties. Plus, they have fun names like “Believe It Or Not,” “Jersey Devil,” and the Italian name, “Costoluto Genovese.”

Sample our heirloom tomatoes in our Heirloom Tomato & Burrata Caprese Salad with kalamata olives, fresh basil, lemon and balsamic vinaigrette. Pairs well with an Italian martini and our patio! Join us any day of the week or make a reservation by calling 314-942-6555.
