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.
Limehouse Produce latest promotion comes with a sizable prize package and an important safety warning: Don’t try to photograph the grower’s newest truck while you’re driving.
But assuming you’re well out of harm’s way, Limehouse is looking for snapshots of the newest addition to its fleet: A truck decorated with cartoon-style produce characters. Shutterbugs who submit a picture of the truck on its delivery route are eligible to win tickets to the Charleston Wine + Food Festival launch party; tickets to the Charleston Restaurant Association’s Taste of Charleston; Limehouse apparel and bags of vegetables.
Entries can be submitted via Limehouse’s Facebook page or Instagram account. One winner will be randomly chosen each week through Sept. 27.
