Oak Tuscan Truffle Lounge
Lovers of Tuscan truffles will love the Oak Tuscan Truffle Lounge. There are truffles in just about everything. In fact, each dish is topped with 10 grams of freshly shaved truffles. The menu includes things like Lobster Salad with arugula, baby peaches and pine nuts; Truffled Mashed Potatoes with parmigiano; and Tagliolino Cacio & Pepe with truffle pecorino romano cheese, organic eggs, asparagus and truffle salt. There's a 9 oz Filet Mignon "Rossini" with seared foie gras, baby spinach in a barolo wine reduction, and the Oak's Burger served with roasted truffle rainbow potatoes. The space is jet black with a crystal chandelier. Owner Rudy Accornero says the goal is give New Yorkers a truly luxurious truffle experience.
