first time chow hound in boston looking for truffle dishes
Nate -- welcome! You're a little early. Truffles tend to show up on local menus around mid to late November. Two ideas come to mind:
- there is a super trufffled pecorino at Formaggio in Cambridge, if you'd like to pick up a hunk of cheese and enjoy your truffle that way
- a few of the dishes at O Ya (upscale sushi near South Station) feature truffles.
If you can wait a bit, keep your eye on Troquet's menu for truffles in the late fall.
