On my recent trip to New York, Lindsey and I had a little friend date at Goat Town. After some really hard work, it was nice to sit back and relax. To start, we ordered a bottle of wine, split the amazing roasted brussel sprouts, and I sneaked (shouldn’t snuck be a word) in an east coast oyster… I can’t pass up an oyster. Lindsey ordered the Goat Town burger and I went with the cioppino. Even after all that we somehow found room for dessert. It was a controversial dessert, our amazing waiter was going to substitute one of the components that was missing, which is apparently a big no no and resulted in a verbal whipping from the manager. But our waiter prevailed! And we ended up with the best dessert I’ve ever had – carmel, pretzels, ice cream… so good. To top off all the good food and service, the bartender (who was from the UP – Upper Peninsula for all you non-Michiganders) was playing some great records all night. Don’t you love friend dates?
