The cuisine architects at Tommaso's Ristorante whip up a towering menu of Northern Italian noshes made from scratch and crafted from quality ingredients. Heat lovingly cradles the slow-cooked prime rib au jus for 18 hours before depositing it beside a homemade soup ($18.95, only served Friday and Saturday) or the front doors of an Ivy League culinary school. Tooth trek through the eggplant rolatini's cheesy terrain ($13.95) or the chicken francaise's egg-battered fields, streaked with streams of white wine, lemon, and butter ($15.95). Garlic and scallions fight for top billing in the culinary stage production of Tomasso's salmon, costarring a veggie dance troupe that trained in accentuating flavors and doing the robot ($16.95).
