Critic's Pick: Peak Season Tomato Bruschetta at Serafina in White Plains, NY

I’ve always loved the Shakespearean prohibition against “gilding the lily.” It’s the perfect warning against the apparently human compulsion to screw up something that’s naturally beautiful. In that vein, this week’s EDP is giving a shout-out to a naturally perfect dish: it’s a lily of wood-toasted bread served under a dice of chopped, seasonal heirloom tomatoes. There’s a little oil, some basil, some salt, great tomatoes, and bread. It’s the edible analog of a supermodel who’s not wearing any makeup.
