CELEBRATE FERRARO’S 34TH ANNIVERSARY AND
WHITE TRUFFLE SEASON THIS NOVEMBER
In November, Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar celebrates two highly anticipated fall occasions with two special menu events—its anniversary and white truffle season.
This year marks the 34th anniversary of Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar and the family invites the public to celebrate with them over two weekends featuring special menus. On Nov. 8 – 10 and Nov. 15 – 17, guests will enjoy a prix-fixe three-course menu highlighting many of Ferraro’s favorite dishes for an outstanding $34.34 per person. Guests may choose their appetizer (perhaps Calamari Fritti or Carpaccio di Manzo) and main course (selections include Spaghetti Aglio Olio and Pici Toscano—wild boar ragù). Plus, all diners receive a tempting “dolci” platter—a sampling of Ferraro’s famously indulgent desserts.
White truffle season comes to Ferraro’s on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., when guests will savor one of the season’s most indulgent ingredients – Italian white truffles – at this special-occasion dinner. Italian white truffles are widely regarded as the most exquisite of all truffles. Their season runs typically from late October to late December. Truffles grow in the wild, where they enjoy a symbiotic relationship with mature oak, beech and hazelnut trees, from which they draw carbohydrates while growing underground. For this reason, truffles cannot be cultivated. That fact, together with their unmistakably rich and umami-filled flavor, makes truffles a universally rare and sought-after ingredient.
This extraordinary dinner stars the three revered Nebbiolo wines: Barbera, Barbaresco and Barolo—each one paired with dishes incorporating shaved white truffle:
- Braida, Barbera Montebruna, 2016
Slow poached egg, potato mousseline, raschera cheese
- Braida, Barbera “Ai Suma”, 2016
Battuta al Coltello
Piedmont style beef tartare, hazelnut, porcini mushrooms
- Pio Cesare Barbaresco, 2013
Tajarin e Quaglia
32 yolk Taglierini, quail consommé reduction
- Pio Cesare Barolo, 2015
Veal sirloin, chestnut, pumpkin, fontina cheese
Note this event replaces Ferraro’s monthly Taste & Learn evening, although dishes served will be full portions, not tapas-style small plates. The cost for this one-night-only dinner is $250 per person, all inclusive.
Reservations are always recommended; to reserve, call (702) 364-5300.
