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.

Marie-Fleur St-Pierre's tapas menu will get a little makeover in time for white truffle season. And in time for the Villeray restaurant's 10th anniversary too.

Impasto

Impasto chef Michele Forgione shaves white truffles over a warm bed of risotto. The dish will be available as of this Friday.

Buonanotte

Copy Link
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.

Apollo Restaurant

Copy Link
No official word on Giovanni Apollo's intentions but in times past truffles have been available at the chef's flagship restaurant as a supplement on foie gras and pasta.

Il Latini

Copy Link
Il Latini shaves truffles table-side as a supplement but chef Massimo Trentin's veal loin with fonduta, tagliolini with butter, sunny side-up egg and spinach and yolk raviolo also get the tartufo treatment.

Club Chasse et Pêche

Club Chasse et Pêche keeps it simple and elegant with white truffles shaved over orzo, egg yolk, Parmesan and fresh herbs.

La Champagnerie

White truffles will class up this Old Montreal Champagne bar's menu of pulled pork poutine, grilled squid and other casual items over the next few weeks.

Osteria Venti

Copy Link
Chef Nicholas D'Onofrio's plans for white truffles at Venti include seasonal classics like wild boar ragù on pappardelle with roasted squash and a risotto.

Le Muscadin

Le Muscadin owner Leo Iacono actually hung up the phone when asked about the restaurant's white truffle plans. Could this be a sign of good things to come?

Graziella

Copy Link
Graziella's menu is full of classic vehicles for truffles but chef Graziella herself probably has a few specials in mind for the tartufi bianchi. No pressure chef.

Maison Boulud

Executive chef Riccardo Bertolino's white truffle dishes include a spaghetti alla chitarra with a chicken stock, butter and truffle emulsion, available for lunch. On the dinner menu Maison Boulud will do a yolk ravioli and a sunchoke soup. White truffles are available as a supplement too, of course.
