‘Tis the season to indulge in the ultimate decadence of truffles. Whether it’s the black truffle you crave or the rarity of the most coveted white truffle shaved over your favorite dish, now is the time to get your truffle on.

To celebrate, we have rounded up five of the most lavish spots to dine on these delicate and aromatic dishes this season here in Boston.

One of the best ways to enjoy truffles is every way possible. To celebrate, Meritage at the Boston Harbor Hotel is hosting a four-course dinner for $175 per person dedicated to white truffles and wines of Piedmont.  First dish starts off with white truffle and shallot confit aioli; from there, move onto Perigord black truffles with diver sea scallops. The third course rolls out Alba white truffles with lemon ricotta and egg yolk followed by venison Noisette with black and white truffles. For dessert, think black cocoa truffle cake with pistachio gelato.
