St. Regis Atlanta To Hold Truffle Dinner

The St. Regis Atlanta, an unparalleled in-town resort located in the elegant enclave of Buckhead, is pleased to announce a five course Truffle Dinner featuring award-winning La Spinetta wines and live jazz. The Truffle Dinner presents guests and locals with a taste of the elusive white truffle – the world’s most expensive food, otherwise known as “white diamonds” – and commemorates St. Regis Hotels & Resorts’ deep-rooted history with jazz.

The Truffle Dinner will include black and white truffles, revered as a delicacy with near-mystical powers -- at least since Roman times. White truffles are valued for the intoxicating potency of their aroma and the distinctive but difficult to describe flavors they elicit. Among the dishes that will feature white truffles are: Porcini Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto with Shaved White Truffles; Pistachio and White Truffle Milk Shake; White Truffle and Hazelnut Macaroons.

The St. Regis Atlanta will also serve truffles as a part of dishes including Robiola and Wild Mushroom Flatbread with Caramelized Onions and Truffles; Candy Stripe Beets with Goat’s Milk Cheese and Truffle Honey; Duo of Roasted Chestnut Soup with Espresso Foam and Black Truffles; Quail Egg in Brioche with Smoked Bacon and Truffle Salsa; Grass Fed Steak Tartare with Truffle Tapenade; Braised Veal Osso Bucco with Foie Gras; Black Truffle Gnocchi; Pear and Ginger Cake with Port Wine Poached Pears and Truffle Honey.

Following dinner, attendees will be gifted Timeless is Modern, a limited edition jazz CD curated by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis and performed by Marsalis and the acclaimed Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. This musical ensemble was produced exclusively for the St. Regis brand and features 21 jazz standards.

The five-course Truffle Dinner and La Spinetta wine pairing will take place on Monday, November 15 at The St. Regis Atlanta; 6 pm. reception in The Wine Room and 7 p.m. dinner in Paces 88. The cost is $150 per person.
