Foie Gras Ban a Boon for Nevada Restaurants, Businesses


No surprise here, but some restaurants in Reno and on the Nevada side of South Lake Tahoe are benefiting from the California foie gras ban as beleaguered foie fans pour over the border to get their fix. Also, businesses like Mirepoix U.S.A. — an importer and online retailer of French luxury foods that relocated to Nevada ahead of the ban and whose URL has been changed to — has been doing brisk business as well.
