Spring is finally in the air in London town, and Sunday afternoon is one of my favourite days to stroll around to find a new haunt. Where better to peruse than the Fulham Road and check out the newly opened ‘ Goat’ formerly ‘The Goat in Boots’.
The restaurant scene in London has had an explosion of decent American inspired openings from Lobster and Burger to Gaspar’s in the city and now Goat, which is set to live up to the label. It has an urban almost New York feel to it and is something different for the Fulham Road residents, all steel tubes and metal grids, with contemporary wooden tables, it has a clean and modern feel. Upstairs there is a lounge/ bar with cosy seating areas, and a DJ every evening.
Service was excellent and the staff knew the menu quite well or were happy to ask the Chef if they didn’t, the menu is relaxed New York Italian menu with, wood fired pizza and selection of fish and traditional Italian meats, as well as NYC favourites of truffled mac and cheese and peanut butter cheesecake.
My companion and I opt for a starter of ‘ homemade cured sliced beef with rocket and truffledwild mushroom dressing over a semolina crisp’ simply delicious and a good sharing dish for a starter £8
- Homemade Sliced Cured Beef
Grilled Monkfish with Parmigiano and rocket and parmesan salad with a carafe of Pinot Grigio £19
An indulgent but creative Chocolate and caramel foam dessert with dessert wine £6
A welcome addition to The Fulham Road usual haunts and a good mix of New York Italian food, I’ll be back for the truffle mac n cheese and peanut butter cheesecake
