BLACK TRUFFLE TASTING MENU 1.20.22

OUR TASTING MENU IS BACK!

Tuber melanosporum, called the black truffle, Périgord truffle or French black truffle, is a species of truffle native to Southern Europe. It is one of the most expensive edible fungi in the world.

The fruiting bodies of the black truffle exude a scent reminiscent of undergrowth, strawberries, wet earth or dried fruit with a hint of cocoa. Their taste, which fully develops after the truffles are heated, is slightly peppery and bitter.

While winter black truffles are best enjoyed from December to early March, the peak of the growing season occurs in late January. We’re excited to welcome our guests and share our Périgord black truffles in this special tasting menu on Thursday, January 20th.
