Yes. Haven’t seen much coverage of this. Low key piece on Eater.

One of the worst ways for an animal to die is being chewed to death while still alive. 

you don't say.

Isn't animals getting chewed to death while still alive a fairly regular occurrence in the wild?


It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

No, now most predators have turned to sous vide.

This is such a crock.    The feeding process (gravage) takes place for 18 days and often becomes addictive rather than something the animal fears or avoids.   Compare this to a dairy cow who spends her entire life pregnant or lactating, often standing knee deep in in mud and feces in crowded lots, before becoming hamburger.    But the dairy industry has the fix in and animal rights people will never have he clout to attack the milk industry.   Besides they've probably never seen the seedy reality of a factory dairy.

I guess the most important question is, for three years from now, where’s the nearest shop that carries it just beyond the city limits? Jersey City? Long Island?

D’Artagnan will ship it to you.  (They’re located in NJ.)

Upscale California restaurants solved the problem by upping the price on auxiliary dishes and not charging for the foie gras.

The NYC law is much stricter. It will be illegal for any restaurant or grocery to even “store or maintain” foie.

Sometimes I need same-day foie, though. And the PATH is probably cheaper than shipping anyway.

Can you be sure they won't shoot you at the border?

While for some here, being chewed to death is probably the lesser of the two evils.

I'll take my chances. 

According to my calculations, The Parkway Deli of Yonkers is the single closest restaurant outside the boundaries of NYC to a subway stop, a mere nine minute walk (more like five at a typical New Yorker's pace) from the 241st St 2 train. They may want to consider adding foie to the menu, or doing a weekly foiep-up.
