Where to Eat White Truffles in Montreal Right Now

View as Map

White truffle season is upon us and a slew of restaurants in the city have trifola d'Alba on order, most notably from food importer and distributor Macchi Inc.

Montreal is no stranger to truffles the rest of the year, of course. Black Burgundy truffles, or truffes de Bourgogne, show up in places like Emma Cardarelli's old school carbonara at Nora Gray and Marc-André Royal's slow cooked free range egg with crispy chicken skins at Le St-Urbain and hot chicken sandwich at La Bête à Pain. Dave McMillan and Fred Morin's Joe Beef and Liverpool House also serve black truffles on the regular.

But white truffle season, which lasts until the end of December, is different. And not just because tuber magnatum wholesales between $6,000 and $6,500 and retails between $8,500 and $9,500 per kilo. Here are 14 restaurants in Montreal that put the fun in fungi.

It seems likely that Buonanotte will shave white truffles table-side on request and on top of pasta and risotto. A little luxurious excess before the lights dim and the DJs spin.
