Where to eat truffles in London this autumn

From budget dishes to blowout dinners, chefs across London are chasing their suppliers to get their hands on truffles. Here’s our guide on where you can find them in restaurants across London this autumn. 



Knightsbridge - 4 Knightsbridge Green, London SW1X 7QA

In Knightsbridge, the arrival of white truffle season is celebrated with a special menu at Sette. There are four dishes that feature it - risotto, beef tartare, tagliatelle and the most extra of scrambled eggs. Each comes with 3g of truffle but you can supersize it, adding more at £10 per gram.

Bocca di Lupo

Soho - 12 Archer St, London W1D 7BB

Every autumn, Jacob Kenedy offers the option to guests to BYOT - bring your own truffle - to shave over their choice of dish. Dishes most suited to the addition are marked with a T on the menu and you can purchase Italian white Alba truffles in advance from across the road in their shop Gelupo.



Mayfair - 1 Dover Yard at 1 Hotel Mayfair, London W1J 8DJ

The all-day menu at Tom Seller’s new Mayfair restaurant gives you the option to order truffles all day long. Start with Urbani black truffle shaved on your smashed avo on toast or, for lunch or dinner, you’ll want their super luxurious black truffle and potato agnolotti served with a roast potato butter and topped with Corra Linn cheese.



Dumplings Legend

Chinatown - 15-16 Gerrard Street, Chinatown, London W1D 6JE

The popular Chinatown restaurant has launched a devoted truffle menu if you fancy trying your favourite Chinese dishes adorned with it. There are lobster dumplings with truffle, fried rice with truffle even steamed eggs with scallop and - you guessed it - truffle.



The Claridge's Restaurant

Mayfair - Brook Street, London W1K 4HR

Who doesn’t love a good crumpet, particularly when it’s topped with something like a LOT of black truffle? On the menu at Claridge’s new restaurant you’ll find these buckwheat crumpets, topped with soubise cream and some truffle purée before being finished off with more slices of black truffle.




Mayfair - 1 Dover Yard at 1 Hotel Mayfair, London W1J 8DJ

With its Italian menus reflecting the changing seasons, autumn is the time to find a special white truffle selection of dishes on offer here at Daphne’s. Have it shaved on top of risotto or tagliatelle, but you’ll also be able to enjoy it with porcini & ricotta cappelletti, a seared tuna dish and veal tagliata.


Bocconcino Soho

Bocconcino Soho

Soho - 59 Great Marlborough St, London W1F 7JY

The second branch of the Italian group is now open in Soho but there’s still a luxe touch in all the truffle you’ll find on the menu here. Black truffle is on the tagliatelle, on pizza, even mashed potato, but we love the look of this truffled beef tartare with homemade crisps.


Truffle Burger

Truffle Burger

Soho, Seven Dials, South Bank, Stoke Newington, West Hampstead

Ever since they started out as a street food favourite, these burger slingers aimed to make the black truffle more accessible. On their signature burger, it’s in the mayonnaise, while the chicken burger has it drizzled over in the form of truffle honey. It’s also all over their loaded fries too.


Sexy Fish

Sexy Fish

Mayfair - Berkeley Square House, Berkeley Square, London W1J 6BR

They love their truffles at Sexy Fish. It's shaved on their Chilean seabass and you'll find it on their (amazing) wagyu and foie gyozas and even on their sweetcorn fried rice. We recently enjoyed it on one of their vegan offerings - a dish of crispy truffle tofu with avocado and edamame.




Mayfair - 53-54 Brook's Mews, London W1K 4EG

For white truffle season LPM have brought in a series of dishes featuring it as the hero ingredient. There’s rigatoni with white truffle sauce, gnocchi à la truffe blanche with white truffle shavings and - our pick - a creamy dish of burrata à la truffe blanche.

Bob Bob Ricard

Soho and The City

It won't surprise you to learn that both of the Bob Bob Ricard go pretty big on truffles all year round. One dish you can usually rely on being on the menu are the truffle, potato and mushroom vareniki dumplings. They're the perfect hug in a bowl and come served with a forest mushroom velouté. Their truffled french fries are also a must-have. 


Gloria london truffles


54-56 Great Eastern St, London EC2A 3QR

All three of the Big Mamma Group restaurants go pretty big on truffles. But our suggestion would be to try the Brexitalia Truffle pizza at Gloria which comes loaded with fresh black truffle, fior di latte mozzarella from Naples and mushroom carpaccio.


Otto's london truffles


182 Gray's Inn Road London, WC1X 8EW

There are a lot of dishes at Otto's that come with truffle, from the Challans duck liver with Madeira and seared foie gras on brioche with truffle sauce and morels to the fresh pasta with ceps and truffles. But the one you really want is Otto's 'Poularde de Bresse Demi-Deuil en Vessie. That's a whole Bresse chicken for two with black truffles stuffed under the skin before being slow-poached in stock and Madeira.


Harry's Bar london truffles

Harry's Bar

30-34 James Street, London W1U 1EU

There's a special truffle menu for truffle season which features all manner of dishes from pizza to risotto with white truffle shaved over everything. We approve.
