White Truffle Dinner at Cecconi's, Marcel Vigneron In Japan, MORE!

WEHO— That epic, baller, gangsta annual white truffle dinner held at Cecconi's takes place this year on November 16. An evening of pricey shaved tubers will set you back $220 or $300 for food plus wine pairings. The menu: Cream of cauliflower soup with white truffle; Kobe beef tartare, topped with quail egg and white truffle; Leeks & sunchoke risotto with white truffle; Wood roasted scallops with white truffle; and Chocolate fondant with white truffle gelato. BAM. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN— Brigham Yen relays an update on The Counter downtown. Recently posted signage indicates an early 2012 debut, not late summer 2012 as originally speculated. [BY]

JAPAN— Top Chef alum Marcel Vigneron is skipping countries to cook two pop-up dinners in Tokyo. He's slated to take over the kitchen at Legato Shibuya on October 25, and follow up with an evening at Tableaux Daikanyama on October 28. Menus tbd. [EaterWire]
