Dale Allred’s Heirloom Tomatoes

If there is anybody who can grow the most delicious tomatoes, it is Dale Allred. Delivering over 30 varieties of heirloom tomatoes weekly to Heirloom Restaurant Group, it is incredible to be able to taste the difference between each variety and see how different a simple tomato can be. They are so good, that we have a hard time using any other tomatoes when they aren’t in season, so we don’t even try. Currently on the Pizzeria 712 and Communal menus, we are offering two very different and very delicious tomato salads, both for a very limited time only while these tomatoes are in season.
