We have been on the hunt to find some of Boston’s best restaurants that serve up our favorite silky delicacy. Rich, buttery and when prepared just right, foie gras is as smooth as velvet. The popular French dish can be prepared as a pate, whipped into a creamy mousse or served as a delectable accompaniment to a main dish. Here’s a look at five haute spots to sample the city’s best dishes.


1 o ya

o ya
It's no surprise that one of the best tastes of foie gras can be found at one of the city's best restaurants. At o ya, it's not only about a beautiful presentation, but combining creative flavors. Here, the melt-in-your-mouth foie gras is complemented with a taste of balsamic chocolate kabayaki and sweetened up with claudio corallo raisin cocoa pulp. This might be the most inventive interpretation in town.

2 Toro

Over in the South End, you have two choices of foie gras at the Spanish inspired restaurant, Toro. Try the sweet foie gras torchon with pistachio butter, poached cherry, cocoa nib or the savory seared foie gras a la Plancha with pippen apple-sumac compote and grilled sourdough.
1704 Washington Street Boston, MA 02118

3 Liquid Art House

Liquid Art House
When art meets delicacy, it should best be enjoyed at a place as elegant as Liquid Art House. The seared foie gras here is a sweet and savory combination of husk cherry jam, spiced almond cake, golden beets, malt crisps, and pulled honey. After indulging, take a walk around the restaurant and peruse the beautiful gallery art that lines the museum-like walls (each piece is also available for purchase).

4 Mistral Restaurant

You can get your foie gras fix at this popular South End bistro that is crowded every night with a beautiful crowd. It's no wonder diners flock here for chef/owner Jamie Mammano's seared version that comes complete with confit of duck in brioche and Wisconsin dried cherry gastrique.

5 Eastern Standard

Eastern Standard
This bustling Kenmore Square restaurant is an unsuspecting place to find the perfect plate of foie gras. At Eastern Standard, the standout dish takes the form of squab and foie gras Paté en Croûe with squash Mostarda and pickled quail egg.
