Sara Hill and Chef David Baruthio have announced the re-location of the Blue Tomato Kitchen menu as an addition to the newly remodeled Prime Land & Sea at 1261 8th Street in West Des Moines. The menu move will allow Prime Land & Sea to be open for lunch starting on November 1st as well as increase the menu offerings of pasta, pizza and sandwiches to go along with the existing steak and seafood fare.
“There is going to be some major re-development at the corner of 63rd and Grand in West Des Moines and our lease would not have been renewed,” said Chef Baruthio. “We have wanted to expand our hours and offer lunch at Prime as well as increase our menu choices so this was not a difficult decision. With this move our Blue Tomato customers will now have a full bar, an expanded wine list and we are making our own fresh mozzarella cheese on site. We will be offering more selection, more parking, more unique meals in a superior family friendly location. The Blue Tomato isn’t really going away and in 2017 we hope to revive that counter concept in yet another location.”
Baruthio says the price point for lunch and new dinner offerings will be very approachable and match those of the Blue Tomato Kitchen. And, because of the extensive remodeling of Prime there is a larger kitchen and equipment that will improve things like the pizza crust and other offerings. Following dinner on Saturday the 29th the Blue Tomato staff will begin to move familiar décor to Prime on 8th Street and be ready to serve lunch on Tuesday, November 1st at 11am.
