Tomatoes is a pretty strange place. It serves mostly American food, but also has sushi, and while it looks like a nicer restaurant, it turns into a rowdy bar once the dinner crowd leaves at 10pm. Despite its inability to decide what it wants to be, Tomatoes has always been a staple down the Shore. Most of the food is great - even the sushi - and it can work for pretty much any occasion, whether it’s a first date with someone you met playing flip cup at Maynard’s the night before or a family dinner with some insanely picky 10-year-olds.
