Where to Dine on White Truffles in Los Angeles

View as Map

2008_10_hasmaps.jpgEven in the midst of a season of excess, nothing says luxury quite like white truffles. This year's crop was not as robust as that of previous seasons, making it one of the more expensive harvests in recent memory. An ounce of fresh white truffle can sell for nearly $4,000, making Oliverio's $125 Raviolo all'Uovo (egg yolk, ricotta cheese, white truffle) look like a bargain. Below, find top LA restaurants that are honoring Italy's finest fungi.
