If you’re familiar with Fifth Group Restaurants, you’re probably aware that La Tavola, our Italian trattoria in Virginia-Highland, has been celebrating the tomato for over 10 years with a special menu called Tomatofeast (which they are doing again this year…more details on that later).
But then we got to thinking tomatoes are as much Italian as they are Southern, right? Like fried green tomatoes, chow chow, tomato sandwiches on white bread with Duke’s mayonnaise for starters. So why not celebrate the apple of love OTP, too? Well, you’re in luck, because we are.
Tomatofeast comes to South City Kitchen Vinings August 1-10 with these special dishes that will be available in addition to the regular dinner menu. Add one to your meal or eat ’em all—they don’t call it the apple of love for nothing.
