White Truffles Have Arrived At Nonna

white truffleby Joey Stewart

Combine one of the best foods on the planet with one of the best restaurants in Dallas and what do you get? One of the best dishes in the city made by one of our best chefs.

Chef / Owner Julian Barsotti’s shipment of Northern Italian White Truffles arrived on Wednesday, and he wasted no time incorporating them into a rich, decadent dish of handmade, delicate pasta. His “Tagliolini with White Truffles” includes a sauce made from Fontina cheese, butter, milk, and egg yolks, along with a “red cow” parmigiano, or Parmigiano Vacche Rosse, which has a higher butterfat content than the typical white or black coated breed. At 36 bucks, the price stings a bit, but so many establishments in Dallas price their best dish at $45 and above that it doesn’t feel unreasonable. Especially since you get a full 3 ounces 3 grams of the shaved fungus on each plate. Get it while you can.

Of course, a trip to Nonna means you have several other great options to consider. Barsotti is featuring two dishes with Nantucket Bay Scallops, his ever popular “White Pizza”, the always fantastic “Ravioli of Maine Lobster”, and soups, salads, and selections from the wood oven.

    Joey, NOBODY serves 3 full ounces of fresh white truffles on one dish. Run the numbers and you’ll get it.
