Holy force-fed fattened goose liver! Ludo Lefebvre follows up on Friday’s big tease with the news that Jon Shook, Vinny Dotolo, and he will unite at Animal on October 14th and 15th to prepare a menu featuring eight courses of foie gras. Called “You Gotta Fight for your Right to Party Foie!,” the event is clearly meant as a massive slap in the face of foie gras protestors, who helped push legislation to ban foie gras onto our plates and may have messed with the wrong ornery French chef last June. Reservations for the event are priced at $175 per person and go on sale tomorrow at 2:00 P.M. The mission is apparently too important to futz around with OpenTable, as reservations will only be accepted by telephone at 323-782-9225. If you succeed in scoring a seat, just prepare to walk the gauntlet!
