First US Foie Gras "Museum" to Debut During Chicago Foie Gras Week

Regardless which side of the "Foie Gras Wars" you find yourself on, there's no denying its foodie appeal. And after all the controversy a little fatty duck liver caused here in the Windy City, what better place for the first American Foie Gras Museum to make its debut?

Starting tomorrow, June 11, the Foie Gras Museum will open at Cyrano's Bistrot & Wine Bar as a part of Chicago Foie Gras week, which continues through June 19.

To reserve a spot, call 312-467-0546 or email chefdidierdurand@yahoo.com.
