From a press release:
“The new Prosciutto Bar at restaurant La Tomate happily offers a therapeutic variety of cured pork from around the Mediterranean, all cut with an Italian artisanal hand-slicer. And when diners order from the Prosciutto Bar during La Tomate’s anniversary month of August, the restaurant will treat them to a complimentary glass of select Italian wine or beer.
La Tomate is the familiar wedge-shaped Italian bistro located at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and 20th Street, NW above Dupont Circle. On August 17, the bistro commemorates its 24th anniversary as a neighborhood staple, and is offering the celebratory drink to thank loyal customers and meet its new neighbors. The Prosciutto Bar is the only one of its kind in Washington, D.C.
The Prosciutto Bar menu reads like the ingredient list from a picnic in the Tuscan countryside: Parma Prosciutto, Prosciutto San Daniele of Fruili, Smoked prosciutto from Alto Adige, buffalo mozzarella, fontina, motasio, pumpernickel, cerignola olives, pickles, fruit preserves, honey… Plates can be shared or eaten individually – from the Salumi e Formaggi, a wooden cutting board strewn with a generous assortment of meats and cheeses, crusty bread, and olive oil – to the rolled meat and cheese Rotoli or the Prosciutto sliders. The Prosciutto Bar was recently built at La Tomate as part of restaurant renovations.”
La Tomate is located at 1701 Connecticut Ave, NW.
