black truffle pasta/egg dish (for my bday tonight)

It's a little early in the season, but I'd like a simple black truffle pasta or egg dish for dinner tonight. I'm thinking a simple pasta with shaved truffle, or poached eggs with shaved truffles, or better yet, that ravioli-type pasta with an egg inside... with shaved truffles. :-)
Price unimportant, quality is #1. No risotto, and the truffled egg toast isn't going to cut it either -- I hate that dish (I love truffles but hate truffle oil). And no to Casa Mono because I go there a lot. Bar dining is preferred - I'm rolling solo.
Will Babbo have something on the menu? Where else should I look?
Hmmm, a dish with actual truffles. I had something with Australian black truffles a while back at Momofuku Ssam Bar but I don't think they have it any more, it was more of an experiment since they were the first black truffles out of the ground there.
Maybe Craft? I would call them. I see a salad with truffles on their web site's menu, which is from Sept. 2008.
Beef Cheek Ravioli with crushed squab liver and black truffles.
Scalinatella also offers a pasta dish with black truffles
that beef cheek ravioli dish at babbo is one of my favorite dishes anywhere!
oh, and happy birthday!
