Masa’s Tomato Dinners Last All September Long

While Oliveto’s famed tomato dinners are all booked up, there’s a second chance at the season’s best produce over on the other side of the bay. Masa’s is doing a special “Celebration of Tomatoes” menu Tuesdays through Saturdays for the month of September. Using tomatoes from Verdue Farm, chef Gregory Short has put together an eight-course tasting menu for a flat rate of $105 (wine parings: $79). While the official menu isn’t out yet, we’ve gotten some examples of dishes you can expect. Check that out below.

The “Celebration of Tomatoes” menu could include dishes such as:
⁻ Tomato Bavarian - tomato cream, tomato gelee
⁻ Green Zebra Tomato Gazpacho - ricotta cheese flan, rhubarb and gravenstein apple salad
⁻ Vine ripened tomato salad - sourdough croutons, 50 year old balsamic vinegar, basil-infused extra virgin olive oil
