My dining card has been pleasantly full this week, and it seems I'm not alone. At the Worthington Inn on Tuesday night, I was disappointed when our server didn't hand us a list of their special Crave Farm to Plate offerings-until we were told the menu was so popular they had run out of most items. It was certainly a bittersweet moment (as I am still craving those masa-dusted fried green tomatoes), but one I will gladly accept. And, thankfully, we were still able to get a taste of a few specials, namely a silky house-made pappardelle with eggplant ragu and braise pork, and a not-too-sweet classic Buckeye dessert with double-chocolate cake, homemade peanut butter ice cream and a rich Belgian chocolate sauce.

And as if that wasn't incentive enough, here's one more: Show us where you are eating on Instagram using the hashtag #cravecbus, and you could win a $50 gift card to a participating Farm to Plate restaurant. Plus, one lucky Instagramer's food shot will be selected to run in the winter issue of the magazine. Not sure where to go? Visit for a full list of restaurants and menus.

If you want to follow my dining out adventures, be sure to follow me at @CraveEditor on Instagram and Twitter. I've got a sampling of my favorite Farm to Plate dishes on the blog today, including:

-The Crave Courtland Cucumber, the event's refreshing signature cocktail available at most participating restaurants with OYO Vodka, fresh muddled cucumber, simple syrup, fresh-squeezed lime juice

-Honey Rock Melon Salad at Latitude 41 with feta, rosemary (straight from our rooftop garden) and chili

-Starters at Explorers Club: Tamales De Argentina filled with potato, hard-cooked eggs and green olives with a sweet and spicy house salsa; and Provoletta Asado (like cheese on a stick!) with marinated grilled provolone, heirloom tomatoes and a green olive tapenade.

-And, of course, the Buckeye Sundae from the Worthington Inn

This is just a small sampling of the delicious dishes coming out of kitchens this week. And there are plenty more to come!
