Truffled Parmigiano Toast With Wild Mushrooms @ Lilette
Reading this appetizer’s entry on the menu makes it sound like an advanced amuse-bouche. The flavors are so intriguing and big that it conceivably could be the most memorable single dish you’ll eat at Lilette. Which is saying something. The mushrooms and cheese have that overripe quality that in certain circumstances (well-aged beef is another example) becomes alluring in almost a sexual way. The white truffle oil adds to this effect. It won’t put much of a dent in your appetite. But isn’t that what an appetizer is for?
