        Brigitte's in Santa Clara. You can get the seared foie gras as an appetizer or a main.


        Or Gary Danko if you want to drive to the city...

          I had a bad experience at Brigitte's, both food and service-wise, so I wouldn't recommend it. You might want to check out Alexander's Steakhouse in Cupertino. Their steaks can be ordered topped with foie gras and they have a few small dishes that include foie gras.

            What didn't you like? Could it be an anomoly? I've been to Brigitte's a number of times and never had a problem with the food or service. In fact, I consider this to be one of the gems of Santa Clara.

              When I went I had the lamb atop flageolet beans and the lamb was extremely dry and lacking in flavor even though I ordered it medium rare. Also, the beans were still crunchy. The service was wierd in a way that I won't get into here except by saying it was a little too "snooty".

      2. I liked the seared foie gras w/ poached plum at the Dining Room (Ritz-Carlton) best out of the places I've tried. It was part of our 9-course tasting menu.

        1. i'll give brigitte's a try, i was not too impressed with alexander's.

          1. Marie liked the fois gras at La Mere Michelle in Saratoga.
