Chicago Foie Gras is Legal Again

Recommended Posts

:smile: The City of Chicago Council just reversed the ban on Foie Gras! Thank God for the return of sanity.

One can only hope that Hot Doug's takes this opportunity to goose (pun fully intended) Joe Moore by hosing something like a week-long foie-dog exraviganza.

Bummer, that means we'll have to pay for it again! :wink::biggrin:

I'm delighted with this news for a multitude of reasons. Great stuff.

Does this mean that chef Trotter now has to eat chef Tramonto's liver?  or was it the other way around....

With some chianti and favas? :raz:

I certainly hope that Hot Doug's puts the Joe Moore back on the menu. That was a delish dog!

Even though I was lucky enough to get some "free" foie on my last trip to Chicago, I'm wondering what restaurants are really going all-out with the ingredient since the ban has been lifted. I want to get my foie on. Bigtime. Any suggestions?

Sweets & Savories hosted a special foie gras dinner on May 22 (I couldn't be there :angry: ) for $75 pp. (I haven't seen any reports here or on LTH yet. Anyone...?) Chef Richards is pretty accommodating, so I'm wondering he'd put together a foie tasting menu if you and perhaps three others request it far enough in advance. Worth a try...

Well, I am personally happy to see the ban reversed. Bring on the foie! Any ideas where I can find some foie-tastic menus are well appreciated. (I won't probably have enough fellow foie-gulleters with me for the Sweets and Savories idea, but thanks Alex!)

Hi everyone..I wanted to let everyone know about a Foie Gras Wine Dinner at Le Lan on Tuesday the 9th of September. Below is the menu:

Foie Gras Torchon

Tuna, Watermelon, Seaweed Salad, Soy-Balsamic

Seared Foie Gras

Bay Scallops, Pea Shoots, Yuzu-Truffle Vinaigrette

Foie Gras Dumplings

Tea Smoked Quail, Poached Figs, Foie Gras Sauce

Foie Gras Crème Brulee Berries

Also does anyone know of a steakhouse in Chicago that puts seared foie on the steak. I had it at Prime 112 in South Beach and it is the right way to eat a steak...I can only say WOW! If you know of one please let me know...I am craving it big time!

David Burke's Primehouse has foie gras on the appetizer menu and offers a foie gras and truffle sauce for their steaks, so I suspect they can prepare the combo however you like.
