Eaters attracted to Tristan’s special monocultural menu can get a jumpstart on single-ingredient-focused dining at Old Village Post House, which on Sept. 18 is staging a five-course heirloom tomato meal.
The dinner was designed to celebrate the restaurant’s win in Limehouse Produce’s heirloom tomato trek, held earlier this summer. Menu items include tomato sorbet; tomato panzanella salad, trout with grated plum tomato and beef medallions with yellow tomato polenta and green zebra tomatoes. Curiously, the dessert course is tomato-free.
Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m., and reservations are required. The dinner, with wine pairings, sells for $70. Call 388-8935 for a seat.
