Terres de Truffes Restaurant

The restaurant also offers a wide array of truffle products- cheese, oil, honey
A part of truffled Brie costs about €18
Grilled scallops with truffled risotto and shavings
Tagliatelles with truffle cream sauce and shavings
Truffled tortellini soup

Again, I was caught unarmed without my camera, so pardon my blackberry shots! This gem of a restaurant is found between Place de Madeleine and Printemps on rue Vignon in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. IT WAS THE BEST MEAL I'VE HAD AFTER Le Meurice. Of course, you must be crazy about truffles like I am, every dish in this restaurant has truffles in it, including dessert!

The restaurant is small, warm and very cozy. It welcomes guests all dressed up and down, no need to slip on your fancy heels here. Even dogs are welcome! The service is friendly and sincere, we highly appreciated our young waitress and even left a very American tip for her. 

In terms of food, make sure you have a very light lunch or none at all if planning on coming here for dinner. The portions are not huge but quite heavy, most dishes are creamy and oh so heavenly. I would suggest sharing an appetizer, and then a main dish. If not you risk skipping dessert like I did since I absolutely could not stuff myself any more. Its the perfect meal for a cold autumn night.. Budget around €70 per person.

On your way out, grab a slice of truffled brie or a bottle of honey and truffles. The restaurant offers quite a range of truffled products for the most obsessive truffle lover..
