Best Seared Foie Gras dish in SF?

I've got a craving for seared foie gras, what do you guys think is the best preparation in the city? Quality is a must - quantity a big plus!! TIA.

      I was underwhelmed with Gary Danko's version (the carmelized onions overpowered the dish in my version) but LOVED Chez Papa Resto. (eaten w/in a month of each other).

        I had it there about 4 years ago and it remains the best preparation I have eaten, though not for lack of trying.

      2. I'll second the Gary Danko recommendation. I get the foie gras everytime I'm there.

        1. This restaurant has the best Foie Gras anywhere I have eaten and I have eaten out alot. The portion is very generous and the huckleberry sauce works perfectly but it's seasonal. A glass of Sauternes with your Foie Gras is amazing even if I don't really drink. Enjoy.

          1. Both Gary Danko and La Folie are great.

            Gary Danko may have a slightly better sauce, but I have to give the edge to La Folie for having a GINORMOUS portion larger than I've ever had at any other restaurant. I'll take more foie over sauce any day!

              Report of huge portion but unfortunately Incanto.

              1. re: wolfe

                that's an old report. is incanto still incapable of properly firing a decent foie?

                just curious.
