And the first restaurant to receive those wonderfully funky Italian white truffles is West Village charmer Recette. The restaurant tweeted about getting a shipment of the white stuff over the weekend, and now a rep confirms that chef Jesse Schenker is serving "fresh cut spaghetti with butter, parmesan, and fresh white truffles" this week. No word yet on the price. Expect truffle burgers, truffle pizzas, truffletinis, and truffle tastings to land on menus around the city in the coming weeks. Maybe Dominique Ansel will throw us a bone and stuff some truffles in a Cronut.
If you spot any white truffle dishes at restaurants in the Tri-state area, please pick up your smartphone and send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Operators are standing by.
