Gimme a break

Wolfgang Puck announced that he is removing foie gras, battery caged eggs, and crated veal and pork from all his menus, and adding vegetarian options throughout his restaurants worldwide. Puck's continually expanding empire encompasses Spago, Postrio, Cut, Chinois, Grand Cafe, Gourmet Express, Lupo, American Grille, Bar & Grille, Vert, and 20-21.

This is a huge victory for the animal-rights group Farm Sanctuary, which first launched a campaign to encourage Puck to eliminate foie gras and crated veal in 2004. It is also very good news for ducks. --Lee Klein
