Where to Eat White Truffles in NYC Right Now

View as Map

122012_10_hasmaps.jpegWhite truffle season is finally upon us. Those funky, absurdly expensive fungi have been plucked from the rich Italian soil, packed up, and shipped to some of the best restaurants in the city. They're still fairly hard to find in New York right now, and Eater hears that there's some gouging going on in the truffle trade, with large specimens selling for as much as $3,450 a pound. But if you're willing to pay the price, they are delicious, especially when served with butter, cheese, and noodles. Here's a guide to the New York restaurants that have started serving white truffles:

Note: Because it's so early in the season, it's always a good idea to call ahead to make sure that truffles are currently in the kitchen. They should be widely available by the first week of November.

Babbo started serving white truffles last weekend, and the restaurant will continue to do so until each and every precious mushroom is plucked from the Alban countryside. Last night, the restaurant offered a sunnyside up duck egg with pancetta and white truffles ($80), and pappardelle with truffles and parmigiano ($120). Also, Babbo is now offering a mysterious white truffle tasting menu for $300.

Marc Forgione was one of the first chefs in NYC to get those precious white truffles (see the photo here). Now he's shaving them over his crispy chicken under a brick, which is absolutely one of New York's epic chicken dishes. Eater hears that Forgione is also planning a five-course truffle menu which will launch in a few weeks.

3. Le Cirque

Sirio is making it rain truffle flakes right now. You can get a thick pile of the white stuff over pasta or risotto for $130 a plate. Pro tip: If you want both truffles and the Maccioni experience at a slightly more relaxed price, sister establishment Circo is selling similar truffle dishes for just $120 a pop.
