Bullet Point Buffet: Black & White Edition

Written By Scott Joseph On November 23, 2018


  • You’re thinking Black Friday, I’m thinking White Truffles. Word comes from Rocco’s Italian Grille that the truffles have arrived and owner Rocco Potami is offering them up in daily specials. Really, if you’ve never experienced fresh truffles you owe it to yourself to have some grated onto a pasta dish. Heaven. Pricey, but heaven.
  • K Restaurant has truffles, too, and will offer its annual Truffle Dinner on Dec. 11 at 6:30 p.m. Six courses with pairings for $160 all inclusive.
  • If you’re reading this while stuck in traffic around one of the Premium Outlets shopping malls, you may be interested to know that Foxtail Coffee Co. is continuing its campaign for world caffeine dominance with a partnership with the Tommy Hilfiger outlet stores. Foxtail will have a cafe space in the stores and will offer light food options, as well. They’re not open yet but they may be by the time you find a parking space.
  • Shop Small Logo copyBy the way, instead of a shopping mall consider shopping small, especially on Nov. 24, which is Small Business Saturday. Our friends at Southeast Steel are participating with some pretty nice deals on LG appliances. If you were cursing your kitchen while preparing your Thanksgiving dinner, this is your chance to make it better for the coming holidays.
  • Wonton Asian Kitchen, which I reviewed in April when it was still pretty new, has closed. A note on its Facebook page thanked its fans for support and told them to watch the building, on Fairbanks Avenue just west of Orlando Avenue, for “a very new and exciting restaurant.” Doesn’t say if it will be from the same owners or someone else. I’ll watch the building on Mondays; need volunteers for the rest of the week.
  • You can stop watching the building at 207 N. Bumby Ave. in the Milk District. That’s going to be the home of MX Taco from chef Ryan Manning, who was sous chef at Highball & Harvest when it first opened (his latest gig was at the Ritz in D.C.). Probably after the New Year.
