After 3 months of waiting (“You don’t have a table available for a Saturday night until July?!”), Ryan and I finally had dinner at Girl and the Goat. I have never been so excited for a Thursday night at 9:30pm in my life.
To be clear: I think a several month wait to get a table at a restaurant is ridiculous. But in the case of Stephanie Izard‘s much raved about Girl and the Goat, it was totally and absolutely worth it.
I was so enthralled with our bottle of wine and food that this picture was all I captured- a last sip of wine and some bread scraps. Sorry I’m not sorry.
The loft-esque dining room coupled with Tom Petty tunes was a great first impression. And the food? Creative AND delicious. Favorites included the ahi tuna with blueberries and lamb sausage, soft shell crab with green tomato and fig, bread with banana-peanut butter butter and a side of honeycomb…the perfect mix of flavors without trying too hard. Our very favorite dish, however, was the green beans! We ordered on the recommendation of a co-worker and holy wow. I would eat green beans every single day if they were covered in fish sauce. O.M.G(oat).
Ry and I had a blast- nothing like 3 months of anticipation to take date night up a notch! I totally recommend it and please- for the love of goat, order the green beans.
