  • Seared foie gras and foie gras soup, a past preparation from La Folie.

Counting down the days before July 1, when California's foie gras ban takes effect.

Three more restaurants where you can eat foie gras this week:

La Folie offers two foie gras preparations as part of its three- ($80), four- ($90), or five-course ($100) menus: A Hudson Valley foie gras torchon with smoked apple barbeque-glazed squab and blood orange marmalade, or seared Hudson Valley foie gras with spice-poached apple and apple consommé (a $10 supplement).

Txoko, which recently changed up its menu to a more traditional appetizer-entree format, now offers foie gras a la plancha (i.e., seared) with Pink Lady apples, sherry gastrique, duck prosciutto, and pan de mie ($18), as well as scallops with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and a foie gras sauce ($26).

And at Ana Mandara, Chef Duong is serving a dish he calls "Heavens' Reward" ($18), seared Sonoma foie gras with sliced mango, plum sauce, and crispy rice cake.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
