It’s already the go-to store for Londoners with a penchant for the finer things in life, but now Knightsbridge department store Harrods has gone one step further in launching Italian truffle lounge Tartufi & Friends. Already established in Rome and Milan, the restaurant will open on the store’s lower ground in April with seating for up to 40 people.
It’s no surprise that the menu will be a decadent feast of both black and white truffles, featuring everything from classic dishes like risotto with fresh truffle to more extravagant spreads, including the extravagant Tartufi & Friends hamburger with chianina beef, foie gras, sweet onion marmalade, fresh truffle, mustard and mayonnaise (£75). The truffles have also found their way into the cocktail menu, which lists truffle martinis (coffee, cacao liquor, truffle honey, slices of truffle) as one of the options. Go on. Treat yourself.
