If you think you’re seeing red this coming week, it’s due to the impending Tasty Tomato Restaurant Feast that starts July 11 and runs through the July 18. Thirty local restaurants are offering specials that feature the red, or yellow, or green, or hell, even purple, summer orb in a variety of dishes.
Offerings include a breakfast special from Drip on Main that combines Wil-Moore Farms scrambled eggs with fresh City Roots tomatoes, spring onions, garlic, and capers on an English muffin; or, for lunch, the coffee shop's take on the classic caprese salad drizzled with a housemade spicy olive oil. Keeping with the Italian tradition of serving plenty of tomatoes, Il Giorgione is including tomatoes in every course, from a bruschetta appetizer to the spaghetti sciue’ sciue’ to salumi e formaggi, aka the Italian cold cut and cheese plate, alongside pickled green tomatoes. Columbia’s newest health food restaurant, Black Bean Company, is even getting in on the action with its honey turkey bacon club wrap with fresh roma tomatoes.
The Restaurant Feast is a prelude to the Tasty Tomato Festival, which will be held on July 19 at City Roots. For more information on the Tasty Tomato Restaurant Feast or the festival, check out tastytomatofestival.com. The calendar of specials that will be available at the restaurants is getting updated daily.
