Friday food porn: The toast of tomato season at Pinstripes

Pinstripes’ tomato and mozzarella bruschetta.

Pinstripes’ tomato and mozzarella bruschetta.

Bruschetta can be capped with almost anything, but there’s no more flavorful topping than glistening, ripe tomatoes in season. At Pinstripes in Northbrook and South Barrington, they brush slices of ciabatta with extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt, grill them, cover them with organic grape tomatoes, morsels of fresh mozzarella and a glaze of 7-year-old balsamic vinegar, and serve them with a garnish of wild arugula and shaved pecorino, $9.
