Best place for Foie Gras

Any suggestions for where to go for a great Foie Gras dish? Can be appetizer, entree, in ravioli, etc. In Boston/Cambridge/Brookline if possible.

    Well, around here, No. 9 Park does an interesting one with figs I believe, and Troquet gets raves on this board.

    But still: Daniel.

    1. was just talking about the foie gras at Davios and aujourd hui.....


      As for Daniel, how is it prepared?

        1. Chef Boulud does it any number of ways, but always deftly (he even does a poached version unlike anything I've ever had before - it's unbelievable). The secret is not to even come close to overcooking that delicate interior.

          But to keep this comment on this board, let's talk Boston restaurants. I hear Troquet has a very nice touch with foie gras, but I haven't had it there.

          Comments anyone?

            It's good, but I prefer Davios'.

            BTW...I have seen several posts regarding Troquet and some idea that it's closed- that is not true, its the troquet (not affiliated w/ the Boston one) in South coast plaze costa mesa that's closed

              a lot of foie is poached, most all foie torchons are tradionally poached at a low temp for a short period of time so it is barely cooked at all.

              No9 and troquet are my favorites
              Toro's foie pincho (although small - a pincho) is rather good and simple

            2. Eastern Standard serves it as an appetizer, and I believe they also have a dish with a side of foie gras mashed potatoes?

              I think petit robert has a foie gras, also.

              1. I seem to recall enjoying a laquered foi gras at Clio a few years back. It was to die for!

                1. I had a nice seared foie gras appetizer w/shaved apple slices at Petite Robert in the South End this week. Bartender Ben was a very nice guy.

                    When I've had it there you get HUGE slice and it's pretty cheap too.

                  2. clio does a very good torchon and i like the seared foie at troquet.

                    no.9 often does gnocchi with prune and foie which is decidedly decadent.

                      1. I really enjoy the foie at Trouquet as well.

                        A few weeks ago I had the version at Mistral. It was very different, but very good, and served with some yummy duck confit!

                        1. they may not change their menu often, but Mistral's is awesome...seared foie gras on brioche, duck confit, tart cherry chutney. wow.

                          1. Maybe the same as the dish from Clio, but I recently had the Lacquered foie gras with barbecued eel at Uni, it was great.
