Bid farewell to black truffles for another year at 1776

1776 at 1 Lombard Street

This spring, to celebrate the end of the black truffle season, Soren Jessen’s City restaurant 1776 is hosting a mouth-watering truffle-themed dinner.

Scheduled for Monday 11 March, the five-course meal will showcase this most prized of delicacies in four different ways.

Diners will start with a sampling of truffle shavings in simple dishes such as Jerusalem artichoke soup or green bean salad, before enjoying some full-on luxury with dishes ranging from open ravioli with scallops and black truffle to chicken with foie gras boudin blanc and black truffle. More truffles – chocolate this time – will also close proceedings.

The truffle dinner costs £140, or £200 with matching wines. Spaces are limited; to book your table, call the restaurant on 020 7929 9511 or email events@1lombardstreet.com.
