Lebanon — Three Tomatoes Trattoria is celebrating its 25th anniversary on the pedestrian mall off the green in downtown Lebanon.

First called Sweet Tomatoes Trattoria, the restaurant opened at its 1 Court St. site in November 1990. Owner Robert Meyers said his restaurant enjoys its “heart of the community location.”

“Some favorite things about the green are people relaxing in the sunshine, the awesome and expanding Lebanon Farmers Market, excited people heading to the arts at AVA and performances at the Lebanon Opera House, and most recently, the fountains,” Meyers said in a news release.

The restaurant is holding several events to mark the anniversary. For more information, call 603-448-1711 or email
