When a young heart’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of truffles.
And love, we guess. Maybe the Cubs.
But mostly truffles.
So fancy this: the Truffle Bar Pop-Up at Eataly, a first-of-its-kind fleeting fantasy dedicated to indulging your passion for Italian tubers, opening Monday in River North.
We’ve been sensing your pent-up desire to visit the Tuscan countryside with a truffle-sniffing dog and scour the ground for something delicious to eat. But since someone has already done that for you, just come here instead.
The 12-seat Mozzarella Lab station in the central piazza has been transformed into your new off-site workspace. It’s a simple setup. The kind of place you and a coworker can discuss, oh, best practices or sales projections or whatever it is two colleagues talk about between bites of truffle-honey-drizzled cheeses.
The menu is a short-and-sweet nine items—crostini, crudos, tagliatelle—all enhanced with the magic of a changing variety of freshly foraged truffles. And if you need a brut rosé sparkling wine or an earthy Italian red, you’ll find some conveniently suggested pairings.
It’s like they know those things go with truffles.
