Girl & the Goat

Girl & the Goat Review

Bravo's Top Chef Season 4 champion Stephanie Izard's highly anticipated restaurant lives up to the hype, serving sharable plates of seasonal Mediterranean fare. The antithesis of fussy, Girl & the Goat's rustic decor features communal butcher tables, dark antique fixtures, and an open kitchen. Dishes are grouped into straightforward categories—vegetable, fish, and meat—and range from marinated English pea pods with buttermilk-balsamic vinaigrette to roasted pig's face with tamarind and cilantro sauces. Not surprisingly, goat-centric plates take prominence, including a goat-liver mousse with pickled rhubarb and blackberry mostarda. Desserts are also inventive, like the indulgent goat cheese cake with hazelnut crunch, candied beets, and cajeta.
