Best White Truffles in LA (restaurant, not retail)

Once a year, I enjoy indulging and having a plate of pasta with white truffles...I don't mind paying the premium - whether its $50, 75 or even $100 as long as the quality is there and they are not skimpy with the shrooms!

In the past, Angelini has disappointed with the meager quantity...Il Pastaio had poor quality truffles...amazingly, Toscana (which I find fairly pedestrian) had a terrific bowl of truffle pasta - but I really am not a huge fan and am in no rush to return there.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

    Drago Centro,
    maybe next year, because I think it's over for them.

        Good to know. They had a truffle menu two weeks ago, Friday I went and it was replaced with a tasting menu. Didn't look past that.

      Every time I've had a truffle dish at Melisse, it has been amazing.
