Your Foie Gras Options for After Foie-maggedon

LAS VEGAS ( TheStreet) -- Foie-maggedon is almost upon us. Eight years Arnold Schwarzenegger, then California's governor, signed a statewide ban of foie gras; the law's grace period ends July 1, after which the delicacy will no longer be available in the state. The prohibition-like ban on the treat, which is made from the liver of a specially fattened duck or goose, has California chefs and gourmands up in arms, even forming the Coalition for Humane and Ethical Farming Standards ("CHEFS") in an attempt to repeal it.

Rather than wait it out to see if foie gras will get sweet relief, TravelsinTaste sought out some tasty bites in cities where the delicacy will still available for sale -- at least for now.

In New York, uber-creative chef David Burke offers a soy honey roasted Rohan duck with foie gras corncake and a fig and onion marmalade at davidburke townhouse. At David Burke Garden he offers a delectable rabbit And foie gras terrine with blueberry black pepper, brioche and mango. Looking for some seafood with your foie? At New York's Le Bernardin, executive chef and co-owner Eric Ripert offers a dish called simply "Tuna," with layers of thinly pounded yellowfin tuna, foie gras and toasted baguette with shaved chives and extra virgin olive oil. For an Iberian twist, executive chef George Mendes serves cured foie gras with fig-port jam, fig ice and homemade brioche at his restaurant Aldea.
Executive chef Sean Brasel serves his pineapple foie gras at Meat Market in Miami.

New England has its fair share of the tasty treat. Vanderbilt Grace in Newport, R.I., serves a Vintage Vanderbilt menu from which guests can select updated versions of what the Vanderbilt family once dined on. Recreated by grand chef Jonathan Cartwright, the menu includes pate of foie gras in pastry, rillette and chaud-froid quail. Meanwhile, at Cartwright's other venue, The White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine, he serves a beef carpaccio and truffle chicken terrine, shaved foie gras, crispy quail eggs and aioli followed by a slow-roast guinea hen breast and seared foie gras on creamy polenta, garden vegetable medley, braised spring rhubarb and chanterelle mushrooms.

For those in South Beach, Meat Market Miami on trendy Lincoln Road serves executive chef Sean Brasel's creation of a pineapple foie gras, a truly tropical treat made up of seared foie gras with coconut-encrusted grilled pineapple and mango chutney.
