This is a new blog that is going to go up everyday.
Something little that you can do, no matter how busy you are,
to make a difference in the foie gras issue.
If it is a contact, no matter how big or little the response, it is sure to make an impact & you will be doing more than your part in the fight against cruelty.
I will always try to put up an (800) number, or if it is a localized number, then an email to contact.
And I will also give a little paragraph with the facts & references. I would never contact someone without the facts, and would not expect to put someone else in that situation.
Following the quote "feather by feather we can save the whole duck", here is today's feather:
8 1/2 Brasserie
8 1/2 W 57th Street
NY, NY 10019
online contact page
This restaurant is not on any of the foie gras lists. My job is very close to this restaurant, and after they put foie gras on their summer tasting menu, they got a lot of phone calls & complaints. Apparently they need a little more ... attention, for just this week, they put it on their permanent menu.
Please contact them & let them know this is not acceptable. They have an extremely upscale restaurant in midtown, and are doing very well for themselves without foie gras on the menu. There is no excuse for them to be serving cruelty. I have started faxing them the farmsanctuary.com info, and if you would like to do the same, their fax number is listed above. I have also started writing internet reviews, about how they stink & recommending much better restaurants that are close in the area & do not serve foie gras.
Let's nip this one in the bud!
