Tomato pies and fried green tomatoes garnered more than 1,500 votes over four days as voters determined finalists for the Bama’s Best Tomato Dish Contest.
We’re excited to join Sweet Grown Alabama and judges as they visit these Flavorful Four finalists later next month:
- Claunch Cafe in Tuscumbia for Tomato Pie
- Downtown Chief in Gadsden for Fried Green Tomato with Pimento Cheese and Pepper Jelly
- FDL Gourmet To Go in Montgomery for Heirloom Tomato Pie
- Gather Restaurant in Atmore for Train Wreck
The Flavorful Four will receive plaques with the winner also receiving a cash prize; features in Neighbors magazine and on Simply Southern TV; and bragging rights.
Votes were cast on Sweet Grown Alabama’s Facebook page and Instagram stories. Others vying for a chance at the Flavorful Four were The Avenue Pub in Tuscaloosa, Wildflower Cafe in Mentone, Walters’ Gas & Grill in Society Hill and Walton’s Southern Kitchen in Huntsville.
