The first Chicago restaurant to get ticketed for serving foie gras? You'd think it would be a fancy French restaurant, and you'd be wrong--it was Hot Doug's Encased Meats Emporium and Sausage Superstore on the Northwest Side, which received its ticket just last week: "Even after the ordinance took effect in August, Sohn continued serving it occasionally, and about 6 a.m. Friday, he posted the day's specials on his restaurant's Web site, including "Foie Gras and Sauternes Duck Sausage with Truffle Sauce Moutarde and Armagnac-Truffle Chicken Mousse" for $6.50. A representative of the Health Department showed up at the restaurant, 3324 N. California, before he even opened his doors at 10:30 a.m., Sohn said. "I was impressed. I'd like to see them react that quickly to anything in the city," Sohn said."
