Here's a peek at the menu: Ricotta and Black Truffle Ravioli with Puntarelle and Slow-Cooked Egg Halibut with Spring Onions, Black Garlic–Braised Mushrooms, and English Pea Purée Stuffed Squid with Cavalo Nero, Black Risotto, Spicy Tomatoes and Cocoa Nibs Suckling Pig with Fava Beans Roasted and Braised Elysian Fields Lamb with Morels and Stinging Nettles Meyer Lemon Napoleon Milk Chocolate–Passion Fruit Panna Cotta with Salty Caramel and Sweet Milk Sorbet But it doesn't stop there. Tomorrow night we're bringing in Michael Voltaggio and Bryan Voltaggio, the immensely talented brothers whose neck-and-neck fight to last season's finish made for some of the most thrilling cooking the show has ever seen. Unsurprisingly, their menu oozes with innovation and wit. (Pigeon pastrami? Genius.)
