Feeling flush? I hope so, because we’re about to talk white truffles. ~ACQUERELLO~ has been shaving white truffles over dishes like “uovo affogato” (egg over braised creamy leeks and soft pancetta), their trademark Parmesan budino, handmade “tajarin” Piemontese (tagliolini tossed in burro fuso), and aged Carnaroli risotto al Parmigiano—the additional truffle supplement is $60 per dish.
~DELFINA~ is hosting their White Truffle Dinners November 2nd-3rd and November 17th-19th. They’ll be offering a daily changing, à la carte menu with several dishes—and you can have truffles shaved on for $35 (that price may change once they get closer to the date). Look for an extended list of Barolos and Barbarescos, and flights of nebbiolo by the glass as well.
~POGGIO~ is hosting their seventh annual Festa del Tartufo from Tuesday November 9th through Saturday the 13th. You’ll be able to have their specially imported Italian white truffles from Alba shaved tableside (market price) over a variety of Piemontese antipasti (like a sformatino/custard of Castelmagno and porcini crema) and pasta dishes (including a raviolo filled with ricotta and hen’s egg yolk, plus brown butter and sage).
