foie gras

debra Dec 1, 2008 04:01 PM

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.

        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.

              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."

                  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.
