Asher Roth Talks "Seared Foie Gras With Quince & Cranberry," Favorite Eats

Asher Roth talks to Immaculate Infatuation about the dish that inspired his latest mixtape and few of his current favorite eateries in New York.

Asher Roth recently sat down with food review website Immaculate Infatuation to the inspiration behind his latest mixtape Seared Foie Gras with Quince and Cranberry, hosted by DJ Wreckineyez. He say the dish from which the mixtape derives its name comes from the menu of Hotel Griffou on 21 West 9th Street.

“Part of the reason I moved to New York City was to stay close to the family," he said. "When the parents come in town for dinner, we go to Hotel Griffou. They change the menu all the time, but a couple staples that you gotta get after are the Lobster Thermidor Fondue and the Pork Cutlets. The name for our new mixtape – Seared Foie Gras with Quince and Cranberry was actually inspired by Griffou’s foie gras."

In the spirit of recommended restaurants, Asher detailed a number of other places that serve a wide variety of dishes, from pizza to Reina Pepiada. Asher's complete list of food haunts can be found here

    all you haterz talkin bout underground smilus and tweeto dumb writing better then asher and spittin better then the american rapper are stupid........obviously yall dont know real hip hop, ansd if these fools are better then y havent we heard them??? hahahaha cause they aint as creative as cudi or stays on point like wale, im not sayin ash is the best but he comes out wit music that makes sense. im just saying hes been okayed by eminem himself, jay z and he even has a song wit talib kweli...........TALIB KWELI! not to mention that hes done music wit others that have been in the game long enough to crown the kid. respect the new age cause the 90's been done.


    Asher is pretty wack. He has a huge corporate machine behind him which is why you hear about him. Underground artists like ILLUS and Apathy destroy asher lyrically and in song writing but they don't have big money behind them so all the kids over look them. The new Illus album Feel Good Music is a million times better than anything Asher will ever do and illus is independent as fuck. Apathy recently smoked asher as well. Dude is straight up corny.

    • fuck you

      yo kid its not always about lyrical multis, his flo is legendary and lyrics are as good as they need to be, and his first mixtape and album was made with virtually no cash. shows how much u kno... fall back hater

    • young will

      why cant someone fucking block this lame ass nigga?

    • DJJJ

      Lil wayne is wasting his life in prison right now. Asher and Eminem are working on music. How is lil Wayne even considered hip-hop doesn't he sing about Lollipops? Eminem alone is the greatest selling musician of the last decade. Wayne isn't anywhere close to Eminem's record sales. So get the facts straight.

    • yaa

      I hope this is trolling, em alone sellin more albums than lil wayne could imagine

  • bmizz

    OH god not this guy again. didn't he dissapear after that garbage album he dropped became a joke in the hip hop community.

  • sasha flocka flame

    I'll admit Asher's new mixtape is kinda hot but I don't see why this story is worth posting.

  • Yeeeeeeah, f*ck it, I sai

    Asher who?!
