White-truffle menu at Refettorio

rfettorio2008

City restaurant Refettorio – whose reputation for quality Italian food is bolstered by Giorgio Locatelli, who loans one of his chefs to the kitchen – is launching a white truffle promotion until the exclusive delicacy’s short season ends in mid-December.

Best eaten as part of simple dishes, the truffle lends itself to foods that bring out its pungent qualities, such as scrambled eggs on toasted ciabatta, or pan-fried veal chop with truffled mashed potatoes. Both of these dishes will be available during the truffle season as part of a four-course menu devised by head chef Alessandro Bay that celebrates this seasonal treat.

The four-course meal, including coffee and amaretti biscuits, costs £125. To book a table, contact the restaurant directly.
