Fodor's Expert Review La Truffe Noire
Luigi Ciciriello's Michelin-starred "Black Truffle" attracts a sophisticated and well-heeled clientele with its modern design, well-spaced tables, and cuisine that often requires bottomless pockets. Its menu draws on classic Italian and modern French cooking. Carpaccio is prepared at the table and served, like most dishes on the menu, with long strips of truffle. Entrées may include instant smoked bass with a truffle julienne or sautéed foie gras with dried fruits and speculoos. In summer you can eat in the garden—just don't forget your credit card.
