Tomatina International Inc – Chilton Dodson

By in 2007 - Volume 9

tomatinaTomatina is a family-style Italian restaurant known for their high-quality signature piadines, pizza and pastas. Their chefs use fresh ingredients to create innovative dishes that the whole family will love.

Not only does Tomatina have great food, but they create a fun and casual environment. Tomatina takes its name from an annual tomato war that takes place in Bunol, Spain. In the peak of tomato season, on the last Wednesday of August, the town folk and eager tourists playfully pelt each other with ripe tomatoes and the streets run red with juice. Tomatina models their environment on this tradition, so you can enjoy a casual delicious meal (but without the mess of flying tomatoes!)

Tomatina’s can currently be found in Walnut Creek, Santa Clara, Alameda, and Dublin. Chilton Dodson, President and Board Member of Tomatina International Inc., joined Tomatina International Inc. in 1999 after many years of working with Bay Area industry leaders such as Spectrum, Il Fornaio and Left Bank. Chilton recently worked with Restaurant Realty Company to purchase a fifth location for a new Tomatina Restaurant in Berkeley.

Restaurant Realty Company wishes Tomatina further success with their new Berkeley location. We hope to work with Tomatina International Inc. and Chilton again in the future to help expand Tomatina to further locations.
