Foie Gras Protest at Telepan Spurs Foie Promotion at Compass

After the Animal Protection & Rescue League threatened picketing Bill Telepan's restaurant, the GM at Compass in New York City is pushing foie gras on their menu.

From "GM Rob Burns sends out an email today about a visit from a disappointed diner who said he would promote the restaurant to his "hundreds of contacts in the in the pharmaceutical industry" if they would just remove foie gras from the menu. Burns, a staunch supporter of both organic and sustainable food and foie gras of the Hudson Valley, has decided to do the opposite: '...starting next week we will be offering our guests, that wish to try, a foie gras amuse bouche as well as featuring a different foie gras appetizer every night. We look forward to seeing you!'"

I hope Rob will feed the protestors a tasty vegan app on the house evey day that they show up too. To deny some elses enjoyment because it doesn't match your world view smacks of disingenuous arrogance.

Well, kafeenjunkie...take your last sentence and apply it to those protestors...hmmm....let's see...WHO is trying to "deny someone else's enjoyment becaue it doesn't match their world view, smacking of disingenuous arrogance?" Oh, I'm sorry...that would be you and those aforementioned protestors. Let's give three cheers to Rob Burns and others like him

I am glad to see an individual stand against the snarling face of those bullying rights groups. Kudos to GM Burns.
