  1. I would check with Melisse in Santa Monica and see what they might work up for you. Better get your jones satiated before the California state wide foie gras ban goes into effect in July of this year.

      Yes! That's the reason im so desperate! LOL

      Melisse has a Foie for All but its a bit much for my budget @ $185... :( any other restaurant suggestions....

    2. Check to see if there is availablilty at LQ@SK tonight. You get a cold foie gras torchon for about $9 ($45 pp for 5 course set menu). Unbeatable price, as high in quality as anything in town.

        1. Petrossian, in West Hollywood, recently ran a foie gras tasting menu. You might call to see what is currently on offer.

              Hi Yes,

              You don't have to do the Foie for all at Melisse to enjoy theirs. It's a course option for one of their tastings and also sold a la carte. I think the whole foie meal would probably be too much foie for one night....

              So far that's been my favorite in LA, I also had a good seared foie at JiRaffe. I also prefer it much more than terrine/pate....

              I want to try Animal's.

                Thanks Sara!
                yes, I agree it would be too much Foie Gras... Ive been waiting to try Melisse, this might just be ther excuse!

                I highly recomend animal!
                Here's my reviews and pictures if you'd like to take a look:


          2. I recently enjoyed it at Mezze on La Cienega in West Hollywood. I think it was served at room temp.
