The Cherry Tomato

The Cherry Tomato is a comfortable place with cracked-tile floors and rough brick walls, a bar crowded with locals and a young, eager staff. The cooks work in an open foxhole of a kitchen, preparing a menu that's simple and ageless: homemade minestrone, caprese salad, pasta marinara, amatriciana and Alfredo, two kinds of lasagna, and a little chicken, fish and veal. The portions are large, plates can be ordered family-style or personal, and pleasing the neighbors remains the primary mission.
