Over the holiday weekend Stephanie Izard sneakily launched the Girl & the Goat website, finally showing off the first draft of the menu. It is divided up into three sections, featuring vegetables, fish, and meat. The menu is pretty much exactly what we had expected from the Top Chef winner (Luckily, she didn’t decide to go Asian fusion). But it is still thrilling to see this thing up close. Though the opening date is still not official (it has been delayed numerous times), it feels like the opening should come any day now. Take a look below at the menu and start salivating.
Goat makes an appearance on a flat bread, tripe is on the menu, and rabbit turns up as rilletes. The most intriguing dish to us right now looks like the seared scallops with roasted pig tongue and smoked lardo. How can that be bad? Who knows if this will be the official menu for the opening, as the website promises that the menu will change often. But it does show that we can expect some serious meat dishes.
Update: We were just relayed that this is just a sampling of the menu. A larger, more impressive menu will come soon.
