Tonight is the first night of Foie Fridays–the we-love-foie-gras, screw-the-California-ban event cooked up by Kevin McKenzie (of Amusing My Bouche) and Jason Cichonski (of Ela)–and for those of you not completely overtaken by the joys of Beer Week, we have put together a categorized list of all the best places (and ways) to stuff yourself with liver tonight–and all for $10.
So let’s get right to it, shall we?
Foie Fridays: June 1, 2012
For the Traditionalist
Scrapple and Foie Gras at The Corner
This is always on the menu at The Corner, but tonight only, you can get it for just $10 rather than $14
Seared Foie Gras with Cashews, Brioche Puree and Black Currant Jam at Sonata
Yeah, I’m not sure what “brioche puree” is either, but wouldn’t it be interesting to find out?
A $10 Foie Gras Upgrade to any dish at Sbraga
Okay, not the most original entry, but still…
For the International Enthusiast
Pepper-seared Foie Gras with Grape Jam and Greek Toast at Opa
Greek toast is just like French toast, but with a bigger mustache
Foie Gras Ravioli at Le Virtu
I’ll race you
Housemade Pork and Foie Sausage at Brauhaus Schmitz
Tried this for the first time at Cook a few weeks ago and it was amazing. I hope he’s serving it with horseradish
Foie Gras and Ham Croque Madame, with a baguette in French toast batter, seared Foie Gras, Toasted Ham, Cheese and a fried Quail Egg at South Philly Tap Room
Because, yeah–SPTR has always been known for its judicious restraint…
For The Modernist
Torchon of Foie Gras with Pickled Melon, Balsamic-Chocolate Reduction and a Toasted Butter Croute at Interstate Draft House
Because what screams “Fishtown” more than washing down your foie gras with a local draft?
The “Menage a Foie” at London Grill–Seared Foie Gras, Pastrami-Cured Foie Gras, and Foie Gras Ice Cream
The nice thing is, this almost acts as a three-course meal, dessert included. Speaking of which…
For Those Who Like The Idea Of Breakfast Foie
Pan-seared Foie Gras with a Buttermilk Biscuit, Strawberries and Arugula at Lemon Hill
Breakfast-for-dinner has always been one of my favorite things…
Foie Gras French Toast with Vanilla-Apple Gastrique at Valanni
It’s a very classic presentation until you get to the French toast
Seared Foie Gras with Cornbread, Apple Butter and Pickled Ramps at Supper
Because this is how the Amish ate their foie, right?
If any other kitchens out there have decided to jump on the bandwagon, let everyone know in the comments section below. And remember: This is a one-night only thing. Until next Friday, anyway.
