New at chef John Tesar’s Spoon restaurant: Italian truffles, plus Kevin Trevino joins as sommelier



Chef John Tesar just returned from Meatopia (we told you about that here) to find this on his fish counter at Spoon: a pretty six-ounce truffle from Tuscany.  He says he’ll be shaving it into Sauternes-enriched risotto and butter poached Peconic Bay scallops starting tomorrow.

Also starting tomorrow: Kevin Trevino takes the reigns as Spoon’s sommelier.
