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

This week, Baker & Banker is offering a foie gras torchon with port-poached prunes and grilled housemade brioche ($18). (Incidentally, if you were wondering what "torchon" meant, Michael Ruhlman shows how to make foie gras au torchon.)

Michael Mina's affection for foie apparently knows few bounds. On the starters side of his eponymous restaurant's dinner menu is a foie gras PB&J ($16) and seared day boat scallop and foie gras with persimmon, sunchokes, and red-ribbon sorrel ($28). If you'd like a little more with your entrée, there's a Liberty Farms duck breast with seared foie gras, miso-pear purée, and duck shu mai ($38).

  • 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.'"
