Best truffle dish in SF/Bay Area?
As an unexpected but extremely exciting Valentines gift, my parents volunteered to treat my honey and I to a truffle dinner somewhere in SF or the Bay Area (not tonight, obviously, but sometime in the future). This could be either a special truffle tasting menu or just a stupendous dish with truffles.
Since I don't consume truffles on the regular, I thought I'd put to the question to you all: what do you think is the best truffle dish in SF?
Do you know of any truffle tasting menues happening now or in the next month or so?
Or is this the wrong time entirely, and we should wait until next fall?
Any thoughts you have would be much appreciated!
Out of season, you can get preserved black truffles, which can be excellent, though real tuber melanosporum vitt is very hard to find. Most brands I've seen in the last few years are, if you read the fine print, the inferior Tuber aestivum, which is not bad but not worth the prices people have been charging.
