Is anyone going to do one more round of foie gras indulgence before the "law" kicks into place on Sunday? If so, where?
I haven't gone crazy about it, but I've had it in the back of my mind so basically have made a point of going to more French/places that serve foie gras spots.
Animal is of course the place to go as mentioned in my above post (Foie Gras Biscuit with Maple Sausage Gravy and Foie Gras Loco Moco Burger are deservedly celebrated dishes) - but because of the end of foie gras in California, it's been fully booked for a while now - you could try sitting at the bar (get there when it opens) - if you like foie gras, I think it's def worth it.
Just ate at a great new French bistro in Hollywood, Papilles - highly recommend. They have 2 different 3-course prix fixe options, so very ideal to go with a date, each order one of the prix fixe menus, and share. You can add on a foie gras torchon, which they make in-house and is seriously very good. Generally, the place is very solid - owners are cool, place is cute/unpretentious, food is well executed:
Also had a foie gras terrine at AOC (which as I mentioned above is not very good at all, don't recommend going generally, the terrine was OK).
Oh and a very solid foie gras dish at Open Door in Monterey Park (also mentioned in above post), it's a Japanese izakaya place, I think you'd probably like this spot:
