While truffles — an ultra-expensive mushroom-type ingredient that boasts a distinct earthy taste — have gotten a bad rap on TV networks as an overly indulgent ingredient, the Russes disagree. They've even created a special menu dedicated to the fancy fungi.
The menu includes dishes such as a grass-fed beef tenderloin with parsley purée, brown butter hollandaise and Perigord truffles as well as a decadent chocolate flourless cake with truffle ice cream and citrus salad.
Truffle Week commenced over the weekend, and will run through this Saturday, December 19. Reservations are highly recommended, as truffles are a rare ingredient and supplies are limited.
Tickets for the dinner are $150 per person and do not include alcoholic beverages.
