Where: Toloache’s three locations: 251 W. 50th St. (Hell’s Kitchen), 166 E. 82nd St. (Upper East Side), and 205 Thompson St. (Greenwich Village)
The Dish: Go beyond the usual Italian entrees with chef Julian Medina’s truffle quesadilla, with Mexican cheeses and chipotle salsa ($20). You might not have expected it, but Medina said truffles pair well with spicy food.


Where: Rossopomodoro, 118 Greenwich Ave., West Village
The Dish: Owner and executive chef Simone Falco said, “We want New Yorkers to enjoy the truffles in an approachable and flexible way.” The restaurant offers a variety of truffle dishes, from sunny side up eggs with asparagus ($47), gluten-free gnocchi with fontina cheese ($58), Spaghetto alla Chitarra (spaghetti cut like guitar strings, $57), New York strip with fingerling potatoes and mushrooms ($65), and zabaione (whipped egg yolk custard, $40).

The Dish: A white truffle menu is offered for lunch, brunch, and dinner, with dishes like burrata and asparagus ($90), beef carpaccio ($115), tagliatelle ($80 for half portion, $124 for full portion), seared Dover sole ($169), and even gelato ($68), if you like—all getting the white truffle treatment.

Where: The Little Owl, 90 Bedford St., West Village
The Dish: Chef Joey Campanaro keeps it at its simplest with a dish of Risotto Bianco ($18, plus $50 for truffle supplement). All that this risotto gets on top is a raw egg and between 15 to 20 shavings of white truffle. Note: The truffle supplement can be added to any dish on the menu.
