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

Here are two more excuses to eat foie gras this week:

On its à la carte dinner menu, Jardinière is offering a terrine of foie gras with blood orange, Riesling gelée, and hazelnuts ($23). The $120 chef's tasting menu currently posted online also includes loin of venison with chanterelles, wild nettles, and a foie gras crêpe. Or grab a cocktail in the Hayes Valley restaurant's lounge and order a terrine of foie gras with quince conserva and marcona almonds ($24) alongside.

Baker Street Bistro is expressing its Gallitude with an appetizer of pan-seared foie gras with apple compote and figs ($19.50); a salad topped with smoked duck breast, duck gizzard confit, pine nuts, and seared foie gras ($16.50); and a proper Tournedos Rossini ($29), a 19th-century classic from Antoine Careme that places a fat coin of seared foie gras atop pan-roasted beef tenderloin, and rings the beef with red-wine reduction sauce.

  • 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.'"
