    Winston's Restaurant at Sullivan University has a creative way to celebrate the abundance of tomatoes that we get this time of year. The first two weekends (Friday and Saturday) in August, the restaurant will be hosting its annual heirloom tomato dinners.

    As a former Winston's intern, I can attest to the fact that Chef Castro is super talented, so expect some great food, but don't expect the usual. The menu includes ingredients like kuhio foam and compressed melon that most people (including me) will have to Google. The meal includes a discussion between courses about the flavors of "naked" tomatoes so diners can learn about different tomato varieties. Even the dessert course includes tomatoes, which is impressive. 

    Cost of the dinners is $100/person with wine pairings, $75/person without. They start at 6:30 each night, and  reservations can be made by calling 456-0980. Here's the full menu:
