Bistro 5 Does Truffles

Don't mess with me.
Don’t mess with me.

Bistro 5, soon to have a sister restaurant in Winchester, debuts a new truffle menu … and the price is way less than that enormous, $13,000 white truffle we told you about at Urbani Truffles. The 3-course menu is $45 per person; $65 with wine pairings (or $65/$90 for five courses, if you’re feeling really indulgent.)

On the menu:

Chestnut Bisque
Sauteed Wild Mushroom and Black Truffle Coulis
2008 Acrobat, Pinot Gris, Oregon

Pumpkin and Foie Gras Souffle
Taleggio Fondue
2008 Snoqualmie, Riesling, Columbia Valley

Pheasant Sous-Vitto
Swiss Chard, Kimball Farm’s Parsnip Puree
2008 Vigneti Zabu ‘Il Passo’, Nero d’Avola Blend, Sicily

Cabello de Angel
Spaghetti Squash, White Chocolate Cup, Zavaglione and Truffled Honey Ice Cream
2009 Sarocco, Mascato D’Asti
