Foie Gras at Comme Ça

Comme Ça does the city’s most elegant foie preparation. Chef Brian Howard begins with Hudson Valley duck foie gras, cures it overnight in salt and pepper, and pan-sears it. The foie is flanked by a mission fig strudel, red-wine-poached pears dusted with yuzu and sancho peppers, pickled mustard seeds and duck powder. $25, at the Cosmopolitan, 698-7000.

Lobster Tacos at Fix

Ladies, it is possible to have your lobster and not look like Daryl Hannah in Splash! (Just YouTube it.) Topped with chunks of juicy grilled mango, tender lobster knuckle meat is dressed with lime juice, red onion, garlic, chilies and cilantro served along side creamy avocado sauce. Those perfect little three-bite snacks are wrapped up in a mini taco shell package and even set upright to keep those manicured fingers clean while you polish off the whole platter single-handedly. $23 for four, in Bellagio, 693-7223.
