Dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel in Yorkville carries a level of expectation that is easily surpassed by Truffles, where the smartly elegant atmosphere is set by large bay windows and soaring ceilings, surrounded with the work of local artisans, sculptors and artists. The menu consists of contemporary French cuisine, including the signature dish consisting of spaghettini with Perigord Black Gold served with a light truffle sauce. Truffles also features a menu dedicated exclusively to rare cheeses imported from places like Montergie and Corsica, Holland and England and served with seasonal fruit and walnut raisin crisps.
The experience of Truffles can be explored through a range of meat and seafood menu items. Popular entrées include butter-braised Maine lobster, poached striped bass, roasted beef tenderloin, veal tenderloin dressed in bacon and smoked rack of lamb. Vegetarian options are arugula fettuccine and a filet mignon-style dish made of Portobello mushrooms and lentils. Salads and soups are staples of the appetizer list, alongside lobster, foie gras and veal sweetbread.
A restaurant called Truffles isn’t likely to treat dessert lightly, of course. Molten chocolate cake, caramel mousse and slow-roasted forelle pear are among the after-dinner dishes embellished with flavour. Passion fruit sugar globe, vanilla crème brulée and chocolate or Grand Marnier soufflé are award-winning creations that prove the artistic aesthetic doesn’t stop at the kitchen door.
