I'm looking for a place on the westside(ish) for a great foie gras appetizer. Preferably seared (but I'm open), and of a decent portion. Bonus if you can also say that the rest of the menu was just as good as this dish. Thanks for your help.

  1. I have ordered the truffle foie gras at Joan's on 3rd a few times....it's wonderful.

    1. craft usually has a seared and a terrine on the menu.

      1. Anisette has seared foie gras and a pate as well. Amazing sweetbreads too.

        Orris has a wonderful foie gras and eggplant dish.

            I had a wonderful version recently at Tradition by Pascal in Newport -- it's not on their regular menu (at least the seared lobe version) so you may wanna call ahead to check.

              omg i forgot about La Cachette....I'll second that.

            2. The Foie at Cafe del Rey is always very solid. They do a seared piece of Hudson Valley that is the size of a small steak, and the chef's preparation has been different everytime I have been there. I haven't seen a cold preparation yet, but I think they offered it on their Thanksgiving menu- "au torchon."

              1. I like JiRaffe's in Santa Monica.

                    third

                2. I third Jiraffe. Really well done and they also pair it with a sauturn. They give you more than most restaurants. Their portions in general are pretty big.
