    The Best Ever at French Laundry (Yountville, CA):

    review: http://www.chuckeats.com/2008/06/17/...ng-the-secret/

    Manresa's (Los Gatos, CA) Foie Gras & Abalone, in a Tidal Pool - an unlikely combination

    review: http://www.chuckeats.com/2007/12/18/...ils-of-winter/

    Manresa's Mesquite-grilled Foie w/ radish & ficoide & glaciale - excellent smoky flavor

    review: http://www.chuckeats.com/2007/06/06/...be-vegetables/

    L'Arpege's (Paris, France) foie w/ lemon & date - so simple and so perfect - the master of ingredients

    review: http://www.chuckeats.com/2007/04/02/...ity-of-flavor/

    Ledoyen's (Paris, France) Foie mousse w/ truffles & sunchokes - the most decadent dish i've ever eaten (at a mere 150 euros)

    review: http://www.chuckeats.com/2007/03/08/...-of-modernism/

    Jean George's (NYC) Foie Gras Brulee - excellent crisp on the outside, creamy on the inside

    review: http://www.chuckeats.com/2008/02/27/...tic-fantastic/

    El Poblet's (Denia, Spain) Rum & Coke Foie w/ mist of lemon - the beginning to one of the most spectacular meals of my life

    review: http://www.chuckeats.com/2007/10/08/...-nights-dream/

    Fat Duck's (Maidenhead, UK) Jelly Quail, Langoustine Cream, Parfait of Foie Gras - the master of experimentation did right

    I love seared foie gras. If you had to recommend one reasonable restaurant for foie gras in the Bay Area, which would it be?
