Perbacco celebrates the black summer truffle season—

In Rome, popular belief has it that truffles are a divine fruit—the byproduct of Jove’s thunderbolt—and it’s not hard to see why. What was once reserved for use as an aphrodisiac for Italian princes and princesses is now a celebrated luxury for the masses, and it’s almost time for them to find their way back onto our plates. Starting July 10th, Perbacco celebrates the black summer truffle season—the first crop of the year—with a three-course menu honoring the tuber’s fabulously funky flavor. The three courses can be ordered a la carte or as a complete experience for just $59—a testament that perhaps Jove is blessing us with a luxury we can actually afford.
