Talk about Golden Tickets! Joachim Splichal is channeling Willy Wonka at <a href="http://www.zagat.com/r/patina-los-angeles">Patina</a> from now till Sunday, January 8. Order a dish featuring black truffles between now and the end of the week, and you'll receive a complimentary "chocolate box" dessert at the end of the meal. And three of those "chocolate boxes" will include a "Golden Ticket" good for a three-courser for two at any of Patina's black truffle meals on January 11, 12 and 13, with paired wines by sommelier Silvestre Fernandes - and tableside commentary by Christopher Poron of the Plantain Truffle Company.
