Foodies rejoice! With the holidays fast approaching, several of the valley’s top-notch restaurants will serve up some delicious eats.

Read on for details around special menus and delectable offers that will ensure you don’t go hungry over the next several weeks.

New Bouchon Tasting Menu Features Black Truffle’s
Thomas Keller’s Bouchon will launch a new tasting menu on Wednesday (December 14th) that highlights the cuisine of France’s Périgord region with a special focus on the classic Black Truffle.

The menu wil be available as a 4-course prix-fixe dinner option ($80 per person) and there will be special wine pairings offered as well ($40 per person). If you’re looking for something a bit more low key, there will be fresh Shaved Black Truffles available for a supplement of $20-$25 per course.

Consommé aux Truffe en Croute
Truffle-scented beef consommé, garden root vegetables and truffle batons in a pastry crust

Terrine de Capon en Glacé
Poached capon, truffled mousse, mushroom glace de viande and cabbage fondue with chestnut purée

Pithiviers de Cabécou
