Hi All,
Mushroom lover in search of anything mushroom. soups, sauteed, grilled, markets, restaurants.........just got back from California and they offer so many dishes with mushrooms. Also, have take-out food with mushrooms by the weight. so amazing!

Thanks in advance

      There is a great dish I've seen served in several restaurants recently, polenta with a fricasse of wild mushrooms. Scarpetta serves it, as well as Alto on East 53rd. Both are wonderfully rich and satisfying.

        all great. anything that's more take-out, easy to grab thats great. There's a place in LA if anyone is familar, Joan's on third that has an awesome mushroom mix. Something like that.

        I agree with Craft but a little more specifically, Craft Steak has some amazing mushroom sides (hen of the woods was fantastic when had it a while back).

          Third Craft!

          The Garganelli with Funghi Trifolati at Babbo is awesome!

          There is a mushroom festival going on at Brasserie 8 1/2. I haven't tried so I can't attest to its quality, but thought you might be interested.

          Edit: Also forgot. It is matsutake season now. A lot of Japanese restaurants will have matsutake, like grilled fresh matsutake at Aburiya, rice with matsutake in clay pot, dobin mushi with matsutake, etc. It's heaven!

            I always order the pappardelle w/mushroom ragu at Crispo (a special that's always on the menu).
            Craft has great mushrooms as well.

              Ditto Craft. I'd also add in Gramercy Tavern's mushroom ravioli.
