Ah yes, truffles. Those tasty (and spendy) little nuggets of deliciousness will be turning up on menus around town this month. ~AME~ is running its Winter Black Truffle Menu from now through Sunday the 14th. You get five courses (which will also be available à la carte) for $115. There’s even truffle for dessert: black truffle panna cotta with chocolate truffle.

And then next week, ~CHEZ PANISSE~ will be hosting Black Truffle Week from February 15th-20th, highlighting black truffles from the Vaucluse region of France.
