White truffle season is here. It tends to be short — and expensive — but fans of the delicacy tend to be willing to shell out major dollars to get a taste. These restaurants are all featuring the item this year, though it's always a good idea to call ahead to check availability.

Eater will be updating this guide regularly throughout the season, much like we did our soft-shell tracker last spring. Send any white truffle sightings to dc@eater.com.
