The waiter handed me a single sheet of brown paper. Across the top it read: Autumn Menu, November 14, 2013. Two words—white truffles—jumped from the page. Fifteen minutes later, one of the most glorious plates of food I’ve ever eaten was placed before me. Soft, almost runny, scrambled eggs rested on a warm fonduta valdostana rich with melted fontina, milk, eggs, and truffles. Shavings of pale cream and brown marbled truffles adorned the top. It wasn’t much to look at, and the texture resembled baby food, but the earthy, buttery, and nutty combination of flavors left me feeling giddy. Owner/chef Julian Barsotti has captured the essence of fine Italian cooking and he doesn’t need truffles to prove his prowess. The menu changes daily, which is good news for lovers of fresh pasta. Barsotti features at least 10 nightly. Double lucky for me when I discovered my favorite—pici—on the same menu. More here.
