Tomato season is just beginning around Northern California, and while our compatriots to the south are seeing a bevy of tomato dishes popping onto menus, they're still a little hard to find around SF. Right now, it's mostly about cherry tomatoes, as chefs are still wary of the quality of early-ripening heirlooms, though the hot spring means there are already some beautiful ones out there. From SPQR's beer-washed cheese course with quick-fried cherry tomatoes to Flour + Water's tortellini in tomato-water "brodo," here are 12 places to sample the essential flavor of summer.
