Check out the TomatoFeast Menu below. I haven't been yet, but when I do, I'm gonna try the tomato soup, and the spaghetti. La Tavola kicks pasta butt on the regular! So, I can't imagine what they'll do with these heirlooms. Have a bottle of chianti or red zinfandel with the meal. And, of course, gotta try the peach & green tomato tart. I'm making myself hungry just writing this!
Here's What You Do does a new day plan every day. Like us on Facebook below to get updates on your Facebook page.
Here's what you do Wednesday:First: It's tomato day. So, breakfast with tomatoes is in order. It's a bit unusual, but how about a stuffed breakfast tomato? Try this recipe. It's from Pip & Ebby, a great site with good recipes all round. ($ - $20).

" There is no more poignant way to experience Titanic 100 years later than through the authentic artifacts that have been recovered from the wreck site that can only be seen in Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. The Exhibition will be honoring the anniversary throughout the entire year of 2012"The exhibition opens at 11. Head on down around then before lunch. ($ - $30 per person).

Third: Have lunch at the Vortex. They're famous for their burgers and their attitude. Check out this quote from the Vortex rules you'll find in the menu:
"CELL PHONE ETIQUETTE
Cell phones are a part of modern life, so we can’t really ban them. And you are free to be as rude to your friends and dining companions as you’d like, but if you expect our staff to serve you, then you need to get off the &*$% cell phone. Vortex employees won’t talk to anyone using a cell phone at our host stand, tables or at the bar. Seriously, we will totally ignore you. In fact, using a cell phone while trying to place an order may result in bodily injury or death."

Fourth: Ok, time to walk off that burger. Head on down to Piedmont Park and take a little lap around the lake. Try to find the feral roosters. They're gorgeous!
Fifth: Nap. Gotta get ready for your night with the tomato. Follow the perfect bed rules.
Finally: Head on over to Tavola and dine! Don't forget to make a reservation. If you can, try to get there a little early (around 6) and you can probably get a seat at the bar and hang out at the bar with Alli or Kris. They'll treat you right. ($ - $50 per person).
Book Keeping:Breakfast: $20
La Tavola: $100
