Foie Gras Countdown, Week 2: Eat at La Folie, Ana Mandara, and Txoko

Seared foie gras and foie gras soup, a past preparation from La Folie.
Counting down the days before July 1, when California's foie gras ban takes effect.

Three more restaurants where you can eat foie gras this week:

La Folie offers two foie gras preparations as part of its three- ($80), four- ($90), or five-course ($100) menus: A Hudson Valley foie gras torchon with smoked apple barbeque-glazed squab and blood orange marmalade, or seared Hudson Valley foie gras with spice-poached apple and apple consommé (a $10 supplement).

Txoko, which recently changed up its menu to a more traditional appetizer-entree format, now offers foie gras a la plancha (i.e., seared) with Pink Lady apples, sherry gastrique, duck prosciutto, and pan de mie ($18), as well as scallops with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and a foie gras sauce ($26).

And at Ana Mandara, Chef Duong is serving a dish he calls "Heavens' Reward" ($18), seared Sonoma foie gras with sliced mango, plum sauce, and crispy rice cake.

Commonwealth on Mission @ 18th and Bisou on Market @ Castro also have foie gras on their menus... while I'm not the biggest fan of foie gras, LOVE to see restaurants upping the ante in this battle... yet another silly law we've been saddled with by busybodies with nothing else to do but get into everyone else's business...
