Alobar's Tomato Festival is Coming

Since tomato season is still in full swing, but will begin winding down soon, it's nice to see that restaurants are really taking advantage of all that delicious bounty.  Alobar in particular is making hay with tomatoes through their tomato festival, which is taking place in the first week of September.  Their all-tomato menu ranges from appetizer to even cocktails for a little bit of spirit.  Here's the menu for more inspiration - I hope you get to check it out.
