These fried green tomatoes scream Southern comfort.
What: Fried Green Tomatoes
Where to get them: Lucille's

If fried green tomatoes are the epitome of Southern comfort food, then Lucille's is as comfy as it gets. Cornmeal crusted and fried until just golden and crisp, the tart, meaty tomatoes are drizzled with a creamy, slightly spicy aioli.

What: Tomato Sundae
Where to get it: Haven

Yes, we said tomato sundae. A creamy lemon-olive-oil gelato sits atop the bright and vibrant heirloom tomato salad at Haven. The dish is zany in the best possible way. Bold-flavored, but incredibly refreshing, the sweet and tart tomatoes are topped with fresh microgreens, dehydrated tomato skins and of course, the homemade ice cream before being drizzled with aged balsamic. Just for good measure.
