dinner last night at the girl and the goat. one of the best meals I've ever had. here's the thing - I really prefer sharing small plates to a steak, and I really like braised and stewed meats to rarer meats. so the menu is all small plates made for sharing, and the meat and veg sections (we honestly didn't have any fish, aside from a shrimp dish that I didn't eat) are heavy on braised and stewed meats. we had great beef short ribs, a pork shank, lamb ribs, goat empanada and goat belly confit along with ham fries and cauliflower that my wife loved (I hate cauliflower). the wine was good and very reasonable, and the staff was very very nice, helpful and not pretentious at all. on top of that, the food didn't cost us much more than a plate of pasta would have cost us at our favorite pasta place.
