Damian and Stephanie Salvatore, owners of Bethesda’s beloved Persimmon, wanted to open a restaurant that anyone would enjoy. A place with classic, quality dishes, where family and friends could enjoy coming together.
They picked a spot off the beaten path, in Cabin John. This restaurant would be a place to grab a pizza with the kids, have a beer or glass of wine with a friend, or enjoy a composed entrée for a more special occasion. Choosing the perfect name for this community bistro was a challenge, but when they suggested 'Wild Tomato', it planted itself and began to come to life.
Damian and Stephanie chose the people closest to them for their staff. Megan Darnall Solomon, the GM of Persimmon, Wild Tomato & Sal's Italian Kitchen had been with the company for seven years prior to spearheading Wild Tomato's opening and Front of House Manager Tammy Guice, formerly of Addie’s, is a long-time acquaintance of Stephanie’s.
Wild Tomato officially opened on January 14th, 2011 and was quickly filled with the warm and charismatic personalities of employees and diners alike: all of whom have helped to build what has become a place enchanted by good spirit. Wild Tomato’s food and atmosphere is sought out and enjoyed by many, and will continue to charm many more for years to come.
