Locally sourced food, like WiFi, can be found either at a café or stolen from the neighbors. Avoid bandwidth banditry with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of organic café fare at The Ripe Tomato.
The Ripe Tomato sates appetites in an eco-friendly manner with a casual café menu incorporating locally grown produce, organic breads, and homemade sauces. Chefs disguised as bushes sneak up on sundried tomatoes, black olives, and smoked turkey before ensnaring them in the Romani wrap ($9.25), while the Very Berry salad drapes honey roasted ham and berries atop mixed greens ($10.25). Forks scale the peaks of parmesan-encrusted chicken and feta found in the Freaky Greeky salad and ride down on an avalanche of garlic vinaigrette ($9.65). The albuquerque sandwich's shredded chicken bathes in spicy mayonnaise and rests snugly between two slices of organic grilled tuscan bread ($8.95). Hungry passersby can find The Ripe Tomato inside The Market, where they sit in close proximity to knick knacks such as colorful lamps, oil paintings, and soap sculptures of President Richard Nixon.
