Get Creamed

How do you take a lusciously creamy comfort food like risotto and make it better? Add (more) cheese. Chef Roberto Gerbino folds aged white Cheddar and truffle oil into his already Parmigiano Reggiano – laced “mac ’n’ cheese” risotto at newly opened Tre Porcellini in Hillcrest, adding yet another must-try item to the growing menu of yum in this spring’s hottest food ’hood. Tempted to ditch your diet just from reading about it? Split the dish (and the guilt) during Happy Hour, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. every day, when appetizer portions are just $7 and a heart-healthy glass of house red wine is just $3.50. treporcellini.net.
