|Le sigh or le yawn?|
According to Grub Street, foie is served as a complimentary side to the burger at Hot's Kitchen in Hermosa Beach, and along with a $19 baguette at the new Kitchen Table in Downtown LA. Former Cafe Pinot chef Kevin Meehan may or may not be serving it at Kali Dining. In the OC, you can find special speakeasy-type deals at Santa Ana's Playground and at Cafe Mimosa in San Clemente. We're pretty sure we saw a Facebook restaurant chef friend with several lobes in their possession, though we're not sure what they're doing with it.
So what do you think: Should chefs flaunt their eff-you fingers and serve foie? Is it a marketing gimmick? Will you go to a restaurant just because you can get the stuff? Are you jonesing for some torchon yet? We, for one, are a little sad we didn't get Animal's foie gras biscuit before we couldn't anymore.
