Le Crocodile's foie gras crème brûlée is both nostalgic and au courant.
I first became aware of Le Crocodile’s foie gras crème brûlée when I spied a famous chef (and Le Croc alum) across the room and his entire lunch apparently consisted of a dish of duck liver topped with a beautifully caramelized crust the size of a small Frisbee. I scanned the menu but could find no trace of the dish (it lives today only as one half of a foie gras duo in the appetizer section of the dinner menu). But if you know to ask, you can get the dish in a small size ($17, feeds two) or large ($30, feeds four to six, or one hungry chef) whenever you want. Either way, it’s a dish that’s both nostalgic and, in its damn-the-torpedoes adherence to hot-again classical French technique, also very au courant. Especially if you go full Frisbee.
