best foie gras in boston?

At the risk of being TOTALLY un-pc, I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on the best foie dishes in Boston!

Totally embarassing, but a DC and I once loved our foie at Mistral so much that we each ordered seconds for dessert. Heart attack on a plate, I'm sure.

I've found the No 9 prune gnocchi flavor combo to be great, but am looking for more...

I've heard great things about the lacquered foie at Clio. Any other must tries?

  1. TW Foods in Cambridge seems to loves the foie-- I'm not a huge fan and not really a discriminating palate, but they figured out at least three or four ways to have it in the seven course tasting menu we had about three months ago.

    1. Haha!!! I once did that at Bittersweet Restaurant on Martha's Vineyard.....the owner/chef sent out a larger piece than normal for dessert and told the waitress he thought I was cool having foie gras for was funny

      1. the lacquered foie at clio is outstanding.

        1. The best foi gras I've ever had was at L'Espalier.

          1. The foie gras at O Ya is outstanding.

              Enthusiastic second for the O Ya foie (hurrah).

              My other recent favorite was the trio of foie gras starter at La Voile. Seared, pate, and [my favorite] brulee. Bring your favorite cardiologist and enjoy.
