  1. I love the foi gras dish at Txikito in Chelsea. Small serving but delicious.

    1. Ko's cereal with foie gras is pretty famous, and really good. I haven't been in a while so I don't know if they're still serving it. I had a foie dish at Gotham Bar and Grill that was really good. I just had it at Craft, it was great.

        Actually Ko's foie gras dish is a shaved foie gras torchon over pine nut brittle, lychee and riesling gelee. It is served at both dinner and lunch, and it is divine!

          I'll be eating at Craft tomorrow so I was checking out the menu and I didn't see foie gras. Is the menu online not up to date?

        2. Both Veritas and Gramercy Tavern have very good foie gras presentations.

          1. Per Se's ever-changing foie gras torchon preparation is likely the best foie gras dish in NYC, cold or otherwise. Pairing it with generous slices of their warm, buttery brioche surely doesn't hurt. It's usually on their Salon menu, so you don't have to commit to a full tasting menu to try it.

            Other than that, I really like Jean George's foie gras brûlée, especially the summer version with fresh strawberries and aged balsamic. Momofuku Ko's shavings of frozen foie gras torchon with riesling gelée, lychee, and pine nut brittle is also exceptional.

            1. Jean Georges' foie gras brulee might be the best foie I've ever eaten.
