Girl & the Goat

A few weeks ago, the husband and I went to Top Chef (season 4) winner, Stephanie Izard's restaurant for my birthday. We were both really excited to try the Girl & the Goat. They feature small plates that are meant to be shared. Everything was flavorful and the service was excellent. We definitely want to try this place again...but with another couple so we can try more items on the menu. :)
[As we were leaving, the husband jokingly said we should take a picture w/ Stephanie.
Our waiter overheard us and totally encouraged us to take one. She seemed busy
expediting orders, but she took the time for a quick photo. They were all so nice!]

[sauteed green beans in a fish sauce vinaigrette]

[the best oysters I've ever had]

[chickpea fritters (our favorite dish of the meal!) with the most delicious heirloom tomatoes]

[sauteed shrimp . peanut pork ragout . shiitake . spaghetti squash - this dish was just ok.]

[the famous Pig Face (yes, you read that right.) it was pretty tasty!]

[happy birthday to me. :) the dessert was a goat cheese bavaroise w/ blueberries]
