More White Truffle Madness

Last week I posted about restaurants serving white truffles, and now here are a couple more spots where you can get your truffle on:

Chef Staffan Terje at ~PERBACCO~ has put together a special (and extensive) menu, with dishes like panna cotta di cavolfiore (chilled cauliflower custard topped with crab and sea urchin) and raviolo di polenta con uovo (pasta filled with Moretti polenta and farm-fresh hen egg, corn, and parmigiano crema). Every dish is served with three grams of white truffle. The menu is planned to launch on November 9th, and will be available for as long as the truffle supply lasts.

~PALIO D’ASTI~ is hosting “Noble Country Dinners,” showcasing black, white, and chocolate truffles on Friday November 12th and Saturday November 13th. The five-course, prix-fixe menus will be served at 6:30pm for $75 (exclusive of tax and gratuity), with wine pairings available for an additional $45. Reservations are required. White truffles will also be served at the restaurant in daily specials and can be added to any dish upon request.
