Tomato Days
Whether you say "tomato" or "tomahto," Wasatch Community Gardens (824 S. 400 West, Salt Lake City, 801-359-2658) is teaming up with a number of local restaurants for Tomato Days. Through the end of September, participating restaurants will be featuring tomato-themed menu items, with a portion of the proceeds from sales going to benefit Wasatch Community Gardens and its programs. Participating restaurants include Les Madeleines, which is featuring an heirloom tomato Caprese sandwich on housemade rustic bread, Caffe Niche, Avenues Bistro and others. See the full list at WasatchGardens.org.
