As if you need more of a reason to eat black truffles: from now through January 8 at Patina, order a dish with black truffles and you might win a free dinner at the Walt Disney Concert Hall spot. Each fungi-loving guest will receive a box of chocolates at the end of the meal which could contain a golden ticket (one ticket will be given out every week). If your box is the lucky one you and a guest each win a three-course tasting menu with wine pairings during black truffle dinner days, from January 10 through 12. Should you not score the special box, you can still attend the truffle-themed dinners which will feature three-, five-, and seven-course tasting menus for $95, $135, and $175, respectively. Christopher Poron of Plantain Truffle Company will also be on hand to share stories of the truffle harvest. The dinners run from 5 to 9:30 p.m.
