Truffle season is in full force, and Eataly wants you to eat plenty of them.
A new restaurant, Il Tartufo (yes, that’s truffle in Italian), is opening in the former home of Eataly’s Pranzo. Open for weekday lunch from noon to 3 p.m. from Nov. 2 to Dec. 31, the menu by Eataly New York chef Fitz Tallon will feature dishes prominently featuring black and white truffles.
While truffle prices and availability can change drastically by the week, a preliminary menu (menu prices will fluctuate as well) looks pretty tempting.
Carne Cruda e Topinambur
Italian style steak tartare with sunchokes, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil
Pane, Burro e Acciughe
