Chef Perfecto Rocher wants to help take your mind off the upcoming foie gras ban by reminding you that there are tons of other tasty animal livers that make for perfectly suitable ingredients. While many other restaurants are hosting all-out foie feasts, Lazy Ox Canteen is planning a "Forget Foie" menu -- intended to "celebrate [their] apathy" with the foie gras issue -- set to run as an a la carte menu. On June 29-30, the menu will feature alternatives to foie like braised octopus with monkfish liver (known as the "foie gras of the sea"), beef liver cooked "a la plancha" with roasted yams, and a Lazy Ox burger topped off with lamb's liver. Remember what your mother said about eating liver. Turn the page for the full menu.
