Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Hot Tomato's conveniently located downtown adjacent to historic Union Station. This casual eatery silences the cries of hungry stomachs with their menu of sandwiches, burgers and classic Italian flavors like tender meatballs drizzled with tomato sauce, parmesan and ricotta cheeses, and pasta sculptures of Dom DeLuise. With an open kitchen and multiple dining areas, Hot Tomato's warm décor invites relaxation and their accommodating staff sets the dining pace for the customer's needs. Rapid ravishers can grab a quick bite of 3 Devils Shrimp ($20) made with spicy tomato sauce, hot cherry peppers, sweet sausage and shrimp tossed with angel hair pasta. Diners can kick back on the outdoor stone patio and enjoy traditional dishes like fried calamari ($10) and chicken parmesan ($18) or the vegetarian friendly Spasta Pesto ($15) with sautéed veggies, roasted spaghetti squash and fresh tomato ragout in a pesto sauce. Hot Tomato's also boasts an old world wine cellar and a lively bar for thirst-quenching indulgence. See the website for menus and pricing.
