Take your tomato to dinner

By

Posted on:

Columbus menus are officially packed with gazpachos and caprese salads—a telltale sign that we are in the throes of tomato season. For those of us who garden at home, it also means our counters are tiled with an abundance of heirloom varieties that’ll keep us cooking, canning and saucing in order to preserve the bounty. (Or, if you’re like me, it means eating cherry tomatoes like they’re candy.)

A new promotion from Dine Originals that starts on Monday, Aug. 25, will give us home gardeners one more way to make the most of our tomatoes. They’re calling it Take Your Tomato to Dinner Week. It’s a concept as simple as it sounds—just bring in a tomato from your home garden into one of the 30 participating Dine Originals Columbus restaurants, and the chef will incorporate it into a dish from the menu. (Think caprese salad, side salad or a BLT.)

Plus, for every tomato item sold, the restaurant will donate $1 to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. So that tomato will feel you, and an entire family in need.

The promotion, which runs Aug. 25 through 30, was inspired by Laurie and Peter Danis of Figlio. The restaurant has hosted a similar event for the past few years. It’s grown so popular they extended the offer to other local restaurants to join in the fun. For more details, visit Dine Originals Columbus.

Oh, and tomato lovers shouldn’t miss our fall feature on chef’s love for the versatile tomato.
