What's Good for the Goose...

Quelle horreur! Statesman food critic Dale "Forks Up" Rice reports that seven downtown Austin eateries were spray-painted with obscenities last week by an animal rights activist who apparently doesn't approve of foie gras. Foie gras is duck or goose liver that has been fattened via force feeding of the animal.

The seven vandalized restaurants were Aquarelle, Eddie V's Edgewater Grille, Fleming's, Restaurant Jezebel, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Truluck's and the Spaghetti Warehouse.

I don't know what's more scary - animal lovers with a "beef" against ostentatious menu items or the absurd suggestion that one could order foie gras at Spaghetti Warehouse.

I never realized you could order goose liver at any restaurant with "Warehouse" in the name. Shows how sheltered I am.

You can't get foie gras, but you can get veal at Spag. Ware.
