You say tomato…

* Believe it or not, spring will return and things will start growing again. Now is the time to start looking for a community-supported agriculture group. Tomato Tomato, an indoor farmer's market near 156th and Center, is having its yearly sign-up for the general public on March 1. Many other local farms start signups at this time of year as well. * Chef Paul Kulik of The Boiler Room has been invited to serve a dinner at the James Beard House in New York City on March 30.

Suhsi returns to O Dining

O Dining, located on the edge of the Old Market at 10th and Farnam, will not only be returning sushi to their menu, they’ll be upping the presentation as well. Over the next few weeks, the restaurant will install a kaiten sushi bar, a rotating conveyor belt that allows customers to pluck whatever sushi dish catches their eye as it slowly moves past them. The plates are color-coded, so when it’s time to pay your server simply tallies the number of each color and presents you with the bill. Look for it in mid- to late March. * One of the most buzzed-about books this year is Gabrielle Hamilton’s Bones, Blood and Butter, a memoir that fellow chef Antony Bourdain, among others, have been...

Boiler Room, Crescent Moon

* Everyone wants an escape from Nebraska at the moment, right? The staff at downtown’s Boiler Room took a week out of the restaurant to travel to San Francisco to do some foodie research. Last year, the team visited Chicago restaurants and speakeasy-type bars to influence their menu and drink list. San Francisco is sure to inform The Boiler Room’s wine list and its emphasis on local and organic cuisine. The restaurant reopened Jan. 24, after a week hiatus. Visit theboilerroomrestaurant.com or call 916.9274. * What most of us already know, Draft Magazine has made official. The publication listed the Crescent Moon as one of its best 100 beer bars.
