Three Tomatoes Celebrates 25 Years of Being Part of the Lebanon Community

Three Tomatoes Trattoria will  host a celebration of 25 years of being part of the Lebanon community. On November 19, 1990, what was then called Sweet Tomatoes Trattoria opened on the corner of the Lebanon Green for members of the community to meet up and enjoy delicious, authentic trattoria-style food. A quarter of a century later, the mission continues—“ to be a gathering place where the comfort and warmth of good food always beckons.” Three Tomatoes has been a member of Slow Food International since 1992, sharing their philosophy of sustainable agriculture and the civilization of the table. They have been dedicated to preparing food from the freshest ingredients and purchasing ingredients locally whenever possible.

Robert Meyers, owner of Three Tomatoes Trattoria, says he enjoys the restaurant’s “heart of the community location.” He adds that some of his favorite things about the Green are people relaxing in the sunshine, the awesome and expanding Lebanon Farmers’ Market, and excited people heading to the arts at AVA Gallery and Art Center (Alliance for the Visual Arts) and performances at the Lebanon Opera House.

To celebrate this 25th anniversary, Three Tomatoes will host a Beer, Wine & Food Tasting on November 19 from 5 to 7pm and will offer a gift-card celebration, “25 years = 25% more.” Customers receive $625 in gift cards for a $500 purchase of gift cards. Three Tomatoes will donate a portion of the gift card sales to local community-based nonprofit organizations. This gift-card celebration offer runs through December 24, 2015.

Supporting local nonprofits and sourcing ingredients locally are long-standing traditions at Three Tomatoes. Through their Sustainable Communities project, they regularly donate a portion of their sales to a local community nonprofit—part of their goal to be active in the local community.

When speaking about the relationship between Three Tomatoes and the community, Robert says, “The one word that says it best is ‘family’—being a lively part of a rich soup of organizations, businesses, and individuals, in what we believe is a special part of America. Being part of the foundation of a generation of change in our area and deeply gratified to have provided dinner tables for discussions and occasions of many, many kinds.”
