Where to get nice slabs of foie in a restaurant. does not necessarily have to arrive in a french canning jar.

    The versions at AOC and Next Door Little Door have been consistently good in the past.

      I think I might have seen it at Joan's on Third also, but I may have it confused with The Little Next Door.

        Try Le Marmiton in Santa Monica. Their Terrines are wonderful; available as dine-in or take-out.

          Love the one at Geoffrey's in Malibu. Hotel Bel Air does a wonderful rendition, too.

            I love the foie at Grace and Melisse...

              This is a great thread. We need to get in as much as we can until it is no longer 'legal' to serve in California. :(

                Saddle Peak Lodge version put me in heaven! Sat by fireplace, fiance and I shared foie gras terrine, followed with duck appetizer and lastly each had a phenomenal Elk course with a mushroom sauce. The cappuccino creme brule was the perfect ending. (Brought our own wine - $20 corkage fee). Very professional server. $200 after tax and generous tip. 100% worth every penny.

                There was also a filet mignon on the menu, and I saw a 8 year-old boy scraping out the remains of the bone-marrow (from the filet mignon dish) because it must have been so finger-licking good.

                If you like chili, their Wednesdays (only) filet mignon chili has recieved some high marks.
