Black truffles are here!
Fresh black truffles are here, casting their aromatic spell over diners and chefs alike. Already a pair of San Antonio restaurants are celebrating the expensive fungus by featuring it in a number of dishes.
Tonight, you can have risotto with black truffles at Saveurs 209, 209 Broadway.
Call (210) 223-0209 for information.
And this weekend, Lüke on the River Walk, 125 E. Houston St., is offering a special truffle-inspired Chef's Table Menu that begins with South Texas Heritage Pork Lardo and Pâté with Spanish Olive Oil, followed by Strube Ranch Flank Steak Tartare with Divers Scallops and a Quail Egg. Three Grillades with Anson Mills Rice Grits precedes Wheeler Farms Blackberry Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream.
The price for the meal is $43 a person plus tax and tip. Call (210) 227-5835 for reservations.
