Fresh porcini at Cesar

Cesar on Piedmont has roasted fresh porcini with white truffle butter. Get 'em while they last.
I was there last night, the porcini was amazing! And the pimentos de padron are back on the menu.
Thanks for the heads up on the porcini and pimentos - went over for a late afternoon meal (I love that they're open straight through the afternoon) - also enjoyed the sand dabs (on an arugula and fennel salad), and loved the apricot custard (actually a clafouti, but leans heavily to the custard side).
I had fresh porcini mushrooms (al cartoccio, i.e. parchment bag, butter and herbs served on the side) with the veal chop at Eccolo today. The chop was good but the mushrooms were outstanding. Must be picking season.
