Please join the Bailliage of Greater Washington DC for an extravagant truffle dinner at Il Pizzico Ristorante in Rockville, Maryland, as chef/owner Enzo Livia prepares a luxurious meal for us. Chef Enzo’s cuisine is highly respected in the DC culinary community, and for the last two decades those in the know have enjoyed his restaurant, tucked in a modest strip shopping center in Rockville. When you step into Il Pizzico, you enter a serene, and elegant space. The cooking is sophisticated, with simple clarity characteristic of the best of Italian cuisine that lets the ingredients shine. Our menu will be crafted to showcase the white truffle in all its glory. We will begin with a reception with Prosecco and passed hors d’oeuvres followed by a multi-course plated truffled dinner.
As you know, white truffles from Alba are a rare and highly prized ingredient. Their cost was $2800 per pound in 2020 and we will need more than a pound for this dinner! Although we don’t know the market price in 2021 for sure, we expect it to be in the same range. As a result, this dinner will necessarily be more expensive than many of our recent events. But if you are a fan of white truffles or eager to discover them, this is an event not to be missed.
