I wrote once that Harrods is a food paradise... Now I think it's going to be an even bigger one as the famous department store in London announces the opening of Italian truffle lounge Tartufi & Friends on the Lower Ground Floor in April. Tartufi & Friends will be entirely dedicated to the world of the truffle. If you're a fan of, then this place is yours.
With flagship sites in Milan and Rome, Tartufi & Friends will offer truffle lovers the perfect destination to explore the Italian delicacy in a variety of innovative forms. Serving everything from tartare of Fassone beef with quail eggs and fresh truffle, to truffle Martinis, the restaurant will cater to the most discerning of Harrods diners.
Customers will also be able to purchase a range of Tartufi & Friends packaged food items, including limited edition Extra Virgin Olive Oil with White Truffle, Truffle infused Chocolates, Truffle Honeys, Truffle Salts & Condiments.
The Sermoneta group, founder of the Truffle Lounge concept and known for its retail expertise in the fashion and luxury world for over forty years, has successfully entered the luxury food division by focusing on one of the most prestigious items of the Italian territory: the White and Black Truffle.
Working with architect Laura Franco, who also conceived the first Tartufi & Friends store in Rome; prints from the 1500’s will be used to illustrate the history of the truffle and fully immerge customers into the atmosphere of the sought after ingredient.
