Do you love the taste of fresh heirloom tomatoes? I certainly do. Heirloom tomatoes come into full-swing season every September and at Bistro 5, they have made it a tradition to create a special tasting menu featuring these luscious fruits. In fact fresh tomato makes but one Bistro 5 cameo per year -now, when local rare heirloom varieties are at their very best.
So stop by Bistro 5 this month for their special Tomato Feast!
You can get a Three Course Menu for $45 with Wine Pairing for an additional $18. Or select the Five Course Menu for $65 with Wine Pairing for an additional $22.
(And as a special discount for my readers, if you tell the restaurant that you saw my post about this dinner, you will receive 10% off your bill.)
