One of the best restaurants on the Strip has purchased the largest black truffle in Caesars Palace history.
Restaurant Guy Savoy received the fungus that weighs in at 1.17 pounds and measures 6 inches across. The previous record was held by a truffle that weighed just short of a pound.
The massive truffle was found in the Perigord region of Southern France. It will be used to create a truffle tasting menu that will be available at the restaurant through mid-March.
The Black Truffle Prestige Menu will be available for $420 per person with an available a-la-carte menu. Some of the menu items include the famed artichoke and black truffle soup, black truffle and mache winter salad and roasted squab, spaghetti squash and black truffle croquette.
Restaurant Guy Savoy is listed as one of the top 40 restaurants in America and it is on the Condé Nast Traveler Hot 100 list.
