|Josiah Citrin, foie gras fan|
In other words, eat up - foie is finished.
From now until midnight on June 30, Josiah Citrin will be serving a "Foie for All" menu at Mélisse - giving us that one last cholesterol blast before we're turned into criminals, surreptitiously dining on chunks of foie in back alleys. His meal, an eight-courser, begins with a pre-amuse of foie gras cromesquis, followed by an amuse of foie gras flan with blood orange gelée and toasted hazelnut foam.
Then, the meal itself begins with a torchon with crisp foie gras, followed by truffled foie gras agnolotti with chicken oysters in consommé. Then, dayboat scallop Rossini; Dover sole with poached foie gras and morels; prime beef rib-eye and braised beef cheeks with cured foie gras and foie gras parfait. And finally, a dessert of "something sweet with foie" ($185 per person, served nightly; 310-395-0881).
What do you think about the foie ban? Let us know in the comments.
