Hi, I want to buy some foie gras to cook for an xmas appetizer. where should I buy? I found old threads for retail places in Berkeley and restaurants in the city, but no retail places in SF. Thanks!

    I'd like to know as well. Even better yet if there is a place in the S. Bay area.

        I picked some up at Fatted Calf. I think they have more in stock, but not prepped?

            Just looked that up--looks like they opened in November and are at 141 Gough St x Oak, with a cold cheese room in the back!

            Golden Gate meats in the Ferry Building.

              Yes, there should be old threads that mention Golden Gate Meats. They were happy to split a lobe of grade A in half for me a couple years ago and just sell me half. They have enough demand this time of year that they can do that. And for the original poster: if you're making torchon (poached or water bath cooked), then grade A is good, if you are searing, grade A might just melt away and you'd be better off with grade B.
