Happy Holidays

On The Cover

When you walk into Trattoria L’incontro, especially during the holidays, and once you overcome the fact that your mouth is watering in anticipation of the great food to follow, you stop and you look and you marvel at the exquisite decorations that accompany the sumptuous dishes. Owner and Chef Rocco Sacramone, the Michelin award-winning producer of some of the finest food in America, is celebrating the holidays in a big way with his friends and patrons. The second you walk in you see a magnificent holiday display, and then you look beyond to see the entire restaurant is decked out with the beauty and the spirit of the holidays. While we know December, and winter as a whole, is the season of white snow, we did not know that it is also the season of WHITE TRUFFLES. Chef Rocco introduced us to the concept of white truffles being “the diamond of the kitchen,” and this being white truffle season, our chef designed a beautiful dish that graces the cover of the December Queens Scene, set amid all the decorations that adorn the delightful L’incontro dining room. The flavor of the white truffle pasta goes beyond mere words, and all we can say is you have to try it for yourself. There is a reason that it is called the diamond of the kitchen. Make plans to visit and see for yourself. Trattoria L’incontro, located on 31st Street and Ditmars Boulevard, is famous, and each year somehow manages to get more fabulous and more famous. As their reputation grows, so does the legion of foodie followers and fans of one of the favorite places in Queens – Trattoria L’incontro. Here to stay!—Tony Barsamian, Publisher
