The salad was tasty with thick chops of bacon and crumbled blue cheese as a foil and there were no regrets about the carpaccio, either, topped with pablanos, red onion and jalapeño aioli--all perfect to dress the crostini with, almost like a Blue Ribbon beef marrow alternative.
Next, came our white truffle burger. At $48, Cynthia and I decided to share one.
Aside from truffle shavings, the burger was topped with robiola cheese (which seemed to be great for melting) and truffle aioli. My initial estimation: likened to that of a fine wine.
Overall, the burger was moist and juicy with, of course, a very distinct flavor, yet, I don't feel like it's something I'd have to have again. Nevertheless, I'm glad to have finally had it...
