Possibly last $60 White Truffle Dinner at Sapori D'Ischia

Truffle Tuesdays Begin Tonight at Sapori D’Ischia in Queens

White truffles without going broke.

Good news for Tuber magnatum pico addicts: Antonio Galano of Sapori d’Ischia sends word that, once again, he is going to make it rain truffles out in Woodside, Queens. His restaurant begins its annual Alba truffle tribute tonight and will continue celebrating the little musky nuggets every Tuesday through December. It's four white-truffle-festooned courses, including dessert, for a recession-busting $60, plus discounted bottles of Piedmontese wines. The bad news: This might be the last call for the truffle fest as Antonio’s father, Frank, the head truffle hound, considers retirement.



How can they offer 3 courses with shaved truffes on each (that's what they said on the phone when I called) for $60 ??!!

Overheard at the Zabar’s prepared food counter in the 1970’s:

Woman (noticing a large bowl of cut fruit): “How much is the fruit salad?”

Counterman: “Three-ninety-eight a pound.”

Woman (incredulous, and loud): “THREE-NINETY EIGHT A POUND ????”

Counterman: “Who’s going to sit and cut fruit all day, lady… YOU?”
