Review on La Truffière
Nestled in a narrow street in the the heart of the Latin quarter and just steps away from the Pantheon, is the charming 17th century La Truffière restaurant. The outside, with plants trailing through wrought iron railings is just as quaint as the inside which, operating on two levels, with the downstairs being a more casual dining option and the upstairs, with its vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and soft lighting, makes, perchance, for a very romantic dining experience.
The focus of the menu is on the southwest region of France and as one would expect, it's strongly influenced by the truffle. Chef Kampei Hisaoka produces some stunning cuisine and offers a choice of different menus. To start off proceedings there may be black truffles and bone marrow in fine ravioli with an artichoke puree and truffle juice followed by perhaps, a main course of salmon served with diced beets in vinaigrette and mashed potatoes. Desserts are equally stunning or, look to the legendary cheese trolley.
Monsieur Sommelier is most helpful, if not essential when it comes to choosing a wine from the magnificent list of over 2800 bins from France alone, plus, a smattering of some 500 more from the rest of the world.
