Foie gras in Las Vegas
My husband and I have always wanted to try foie gras. We have reservations at Craftsteak, do they offer it on their menu?
Well, it certainly depends on how you prefer to eat it. I, personally, think Craftsteak serves the best seared foie gras in Vegas. They serve it in a copper skillet with the pan juices and a combination of mustard seed and a fruit compote. The fruit changes frequently but I've never had a bad experience. Compliment it with a glass of Tokaji and you'll be in heaven.
If you prefer the foie to be served cold, torchon style ... then I'd recommend Bouchon. It's a 3 day process they use to prepare their foie and it's absolutely stunning. Served with toasted baguette slices and fleur de sel, it's fantastic - and enough to feed 4 people.
Honestly, is there a restaurant in vegas that DOESN'T offer Foie? I think McDonalds has it........but if you really want it on a burger, go with Burger Bar or Daniel at the Wynn.
Foie is definitely an acquired taste, so if you're going to get it, go somewhere where it isn't $50 for your first try (IE, not Alex or Bouchon.) Craftsteak is a good choice for that, as would be Burger Bar where it is a $12 side.
For truly glorious goose liver, the goose liver ravioli at Babbo (and therefore likely B+B) is mesmerizing.
My husband and I had the foie gras at Craftsteak, and it is over priced, a tiny portion, and not as good as you can get elsewhere. We just went to Le Cirque at Bellagio, ordered the seared style and it was pefection!! I would highly recommend going there for a perfect foie gras. Also, the next thing I am excited about is trying the "Foie Gras Three-Ways" at Spago here in Las Vegas. It's only $19.99 too!

I just had foie gras for the first time last weekend in Vegas at Tableau (Wynn)..... it was amazing -- served on a crostini with roated figs and a red currant sauce on the side!! The entire tasting menu was excellent with the exception of the beef dish, which, although flavorful, i thought was dry and tough ( I would repeat the menu and ask for a different main course). The meal was a bargain for tasting menus, at only $115. The crab ravioli, foie, scallops and dessert were all out of this world!! They also allowed us to order one tasting menu --- and my husband ordered off the menu. He had oysters, duck and chocolate souffle. He said the oysters and duck were the best he's ever had!!! And the souffle was fab as well. My tasting came with a dessert trio, the star of which was an apple sorbet rolled in nuts and served with a caramel sauce... I'm still in awe of the tastes I experienced in that meal.
