Best Foie Gras In DC/VA/MD?

Ok, here's another best thread. Who's doing the best foie in the area?

Here's my ordering right now:

1. Vidalia
2. Restaurant Eve
3. 2941

  1. I have been to almost every restaurant in the DC area, but I haven't had foie gras in every one so I can't answer the question of who has the best in town. One of the best I have had lately was at Le Mistral in McLean. It was sauteed foie gras with griotte cherries in port sauce with brioche toast points. Exceptional !

    I recall having very good foie gras at Restaurant Eve but I don't recall the details. I will say that I always prefer sauteed foie gras to foie gras torchon or foie gras terrines.

      The most recent Eve incarnation I had was Foie Gras en Croute, though the sauce escapes me at the moment.

        Restaurant Eve would definately be my reccommendation, or perhaps Cathal's former kitchen, Bistro Bis... He is an incredible chef... You should try the place again... Has anyone heard anything about his new fish and chips venture in Alexandria?

        Willow in Arlington may have foie, and the kitchen there is exceptional... Also, Colvin Run Tavern in Tysons...

          Can't wait to try out Eamonn's Dublin Chipper. All the reviews have been fabulous -- even for the hand cut chicken nuggets!

      2. Corduroy occasionally has "Chicken Ballotine" on the menu, which is dark meat chicken rolled around foie gras, with a foie gras reduction sauce. Heavenly.

          1. I recently had a bit of it included in an appeatizer of artichoke served with ham, salami, on greens with a vinaigrette at La Chaumiere in GTown. It was a small slice, but really quite good.

            Cocinero Cubano

            1. I would add to this list Le Paradou and Poste.
