ISO: Good Resto with pan-seared foie gras within GTA

Hello all,

Wondering if any chowhounders can provide me with some recommendation within the GTA where they offer pan-seared foie gras in their regular menu or tasting menu.

I went through the board and it appears Blacktree in Burlington and Quatrefoil in Dundas are highly recommended, but it is too far for a weekday for us after work.

I went through George and Lucien's menu and it doesn't appear to have it. Black Hoofs is close for the day and certainly not the atomsphere I am looknig for.

Senses we will be there soon so I don't want to visit again so soon.

Is Brassaii any good?

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

  1. Salt Wine Bar on Ossington has a Foie seared "alla plancha", good enough that when we went we had 2 orders of it. It's a nice room, the service was OK but slightly uneven and the wine list is rather odd but the food was mostly solid.

      Thanks! If anyone has other suggestions as well, please post!

    2. Harbour 60 has nice foie gras

      1. Anyone tried Trevor Kitchen and Bar? I think they have a separate section on the menu with foie gras dishes too.

          My husband and I enjoy Trevor and you are right; they have a whole section with foie gras dishes. My husband really enjoyed the seared foie gras with blueberry pancakes and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Truffled Goat Cheese Poutine with foie gras! You can add a piece of seared foie gras to any main entree for I think it was $15.

            I too have ordered off of trevors foie menu and loved the foie gras with pancakes. The only other foie gras dish I tried there was more of the torchon preparation, but very good regardless.

          1. I have not heard good things about Brassaii since it changed ownership a couple years back.
