Truffles in House

Truffles scheduled to arrive Thursday November 15

Truffles

Fall is truffle time.

This is the season for the best of truffles: White Truffles from Italy.  These aromatic gems are without equal: heady, earthy, even funky aromas that are best shown off simply.

Burgundy Truffles are one of the best of the black truffles {the best until Perigords come in in December} with a more pungent, rich mushroomy flavor.  These truffles go with stronger flavors.

You can have either of these truffles grated on your dish with a two gram minimum.  The whites are $12 a gram and the blacks are $3 a gram.  And don’t worry, we have a list of what dishes go best with which truffle to guide you!

Or just go all out and have our Truffle Menu for $79 a person: 5 dishes, 3 grams each of white & burgundy truffles.  And for the true truffle fiend, we can double the truffle for a $45 supplement.  Our supply of truffles is limited!
