Eataly Chicago will open Il Tartufo in collaboration with Urbani, Italy's leading truffle purveyor, on Friday, November 6.
The pop-up restaurant will be led by Eataly Chicago Executive Chef Rob Wing in collaboration with Chef Riccardo Orfino, the latest addition to the Eataly NYC culinary team. The menu challenges the typical use of truffles, mixing classic Italian truffle dishes with more unorthodox plates. It highlights a selection of small plates, a tasting menu option and a prixe-fixe brunch menu on Sundays.
The casual, full-service restaurant will be taking over Eataly Chicago's newest private event space, Il Salone, on the second floor, offering standing market tables, bar seating and a 50-seat dining room. Hours will be Wednesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., from Friday, November 6, to Sunday, December 6. On Sunday, November 22, and Sunday, December 20, Eataly will host its famous "Truffle Days," selling truffles at special pricing in the market, restaurants, and online for one day only.
During the months of November and December, in line with the company's motto, guests will be able to EAT truffles at Il Tartufo; SHOP truffles at the Fresh Pasta counter; and LEARN about truffles at Eataly's cooking school, La Scuola di Eataly.
