Ok, then. Not sure if they still have it in stock, but Otto's in CA did at one time sell the OU certified foie gras by French Delice

Found with Google search.

You can choose between grade B for $97/lb or grade A $137/lb!
Thanx so much! But after seeing this article about the rav hamachshir in the Forward I'll pass http://m.forward.com/articles/12725/nd-ave-deli-cooks-up-controversy-/ I'm hoping to see something from the ou or better.

Once again foie gras is outlawed in California. (I checked their website and confirmed) Is that place even kosher?

It isn't kosher. They import it from France. But the law, according to Wikipedia, doesn't prohibit importing foie gras if it was produced outside of CA.

I don't mean to bicker, but I stand corrected. Sale and production of foie gras is illegal in California however, consumption is. To quote Wikipedia "The state of California has also prohibited the production and sale of foie gras, effective 1 July 2012.[71][72] Violators will receive a $1,000 fine. Some restaurant owners have declared they plan to use a loophole in the new law; if restaurant goers bring in their own foie gras, restaurants may legally prepare and serve it.[73]"

I don't think any food establishment in CA is selling foie gras. Period.

I have no idea, I'm just an avid googler. This is what I see here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_foie_gras_law

"The law does not prohibit the consumption of foie gras, giving it as a gift or its importation from outside California."

That website is outdated as heck! They're still selling Israeli foie gras which was outlawed there in '05. http://www.caviarideas.com/kowhgoli0lb.html (Still in stock!)

Yeah. That what I'm saying. That Otto's place is located in CA. So it doesn't make sense they're selling.

I think Chagall had it on their menu once. Maybe ask the chef if he could make it for you...
