It’s hard to believe that truffle season is already here, but it’s true. Coming up on Tuesday November 3rd, ~LOCANDA~ is hosting Franco Conterno of Poderi Aldo Conterno for an evening of Barolo and truffles. Oh yeahhhh. On the menu: à la carte dishes include a winter squash soup, veal carne cruda, scallops with prosciutto and black truffle brodo, and Carnaroli rice pudding for dessert. Truffles can be added to most dishes that night, and you can order Conterno’s wines by the glass, bottle, or flight. Make your reservation here.
~DELFINA~ will have truffles on the menu from November 16th-19th, available as an addition to many truffle-friendly dishes, plus there will be an expanded selection of nebbiolo. And then Thursday November 19th is Delfina’s 17th anniversary—stop in for a glass of complimentary prosecco.
