At Lungomare.

Everyone loves a good tomato, but how often do you get to taste a brand new tomato varietal that can’t yet be purchased at any restaurant or grocery store? This Sunday, celebrate the tomato season’s last hurrah at Tomatotopia, a new feature of the second annual Town Eats festival, which runs Sep. 23–25 both in and outside of Lungomare (1 Broadway, Oakland). Co-sponsored by Edible East Bay, Tomatotopia will feature new tomatoes bred by the farmers at Baia Nicchia and Wild Boar Farms. For instance, Brad Gates, the proprietor of Solano County-based Wild Boar Farms, plans to bring a yellow cherry tomato that he’s dubbed the Napa Chardonnay — the “lightest, sweetest, and pleasantest-tasting” cherry tomato that he’s ever eaten — plus a few different kinds of blue tomatoes, which have high levels of the antioxidant found in blueberries. Try the tomatoes raw, as part of tomato-centric dishes created by several Oakland chefs, or in a Bloody Mary or Michelada.
