Foie gras in restaurants !
Hi there fellow Chowhounders... I'm from Montréal and will be visiting soon in Paris, looking for recommandation for the best restaurant for Foie Gras (not 3* sadly, I'm on a budget). I'm looking for the Paris equivalent of Montréal's Club Chasse et Pèche or Pied de Cochon (I know the Paris one is not the same !).
Thanks for your help !
Le Regalade - great bistro at which i enjoyed a wonderful whole fresh Foie Gras, cooked to perfection. It was a starter designed to be shared. Not certain if it is on the regular menu or was a special from the blackboard.
(From MTL also)
Have a look at "Le Comptoir du relais" (9, car. de l'Odéon) it has a good selection of terrines and paté (foie gras), I don't remember if they have "pan fried" foie gras, since I do not like it prepared like that.
see photo of one page of the menu :
La Regalade has the Foie Gras as a starter, ...as well as a main shared by two.
Although I have had the dish in much higher rated restaurants, at a much higher cost, I like their preparation the best
I would love to try it with Truffles.
I envy everyone who manage to get to France in Truffle season, as alas I am there only in May and September.
Btw, La Régalade and Chez l'Ami Jean are way, way better than Au Pied de Cochon or Club Chasse et pêche. They are less comfortable, though. In season, La Régalade has a foie gras with truffle cooked in a sealed pot that is a pure wonder -- as is indeed th roasted foie gras for two at CAJ.
