They tried that here in Chicago years ago, but most chefs ignored the ban and the city eventually repealed it. 

IIRC, the Chicago law wasn’t well-written (shocker) and banned the “sale” of it. So restaurants just upcharged something else and threw in the foie for free. 

I’m not a fan of the item, FWIW. Tried it here and in Avignon and I don’t need to eat it again. More for you!

It's not an ingredient I'd miss on a menu. 

I'd never had foie gras until I started hanging out on the boards.  2 of the best preparations of this protein were made by local forumites. Kudos to Gentleman farmer and Festiva.  Both involved Sauternes, both as a glaze and a pairing if I recall correctly.

Unfortunately, I don't believe we've ever offline together, DD.  But if any of our local winos prepared foie for you, I'm sure it was memorable and delicious.  I'm constantly amazed at the cooking prowess of our local winos.

We (our Maryland/DC group) had foie gras once a restaurant in Baltimore called Alchemy. The place is closed now. I think Wine+Art attended.  Pretty nice dinner as I recall.  Perhaps the ban on foie gras is the real reason the POTOS is leaving NY for Florida.

w+a was indeed there.  A memorable evening in a very cool part of Baltimore city, Hampden.  Some of the coolest/tackiest Christmas lights in the country are on display there every year.  It's the only evening that I've ever had a wine from my birth year, and it actually didn't suck!

Bans, like walls suck.  And they never work in the long run.
