Cornman Farms Heirloom Harvest #2: Tomatoes!

$45 /dinner
Special Dinner #78
sold out low res

The Heirloom Harvest dinners have been so popular over the past few years that we’ve agreed to feature four across the growing season!

Cornman Farms is a project of Chef Alex’s that began with a field of heirloom tomatoes and has grown to a multi-acre farm growing a wide variety of flavorful, heirloom produce to serve on Roadhouse plates! Each dinner will be designed to focus on what Chef Alex and Farmer Mark are harvesting at the time. As we follow the growing season, the menus will vary to reflect the different vegetables being served at that moment. The series of Heirloom Harvest dinners will culminate with a menu reflecting the preservation of foods for sustenance over the winter months.

This dinner, the original harvest dinner, the Heirloom Tomato Dinner, features a buffet of dishes using the peak mid-summer harvest vegetables from Cornman Farms and includes a raw, heirloom tomato bar showing off the nuanced flavors across tomato varieties.

This dinner will fill up, so reserve your seat today! Call 734.663.3663 or use our new online form.
