In past years I have patronized the restaurants and bars in the Midtown Sutter District during Sacratomato Week, as well as the accompanying street fair (not listed this year as an event).
On the Sacratomato Week menu are a variety of tomato-themed appetizers, entrees and beverages. Additionally, live music will be performed at key intersections in the Sutter District.
Tomato-themed specials abound. Check out the offerings and head over to one or more of these Sutter District restaurants and/or bars.
