Girl and the Goat review.

Arrived right on time for our Sunday night reservation at 8pm. Place was packed, was seated immediately. Great buzz going on there.
Server took drink orders and explained the menu concept, he suggested ordereing 2-3 items per person.
Highlights were:
Pan fried Shisito peppers with parmesan, sesame and miso- server told us they were running spicy this time of the year, but they weren't too spicy for us. Fun finger food and the sauce was amazing.
Grilled baby octupus was also great, I usually don't like octopus, but this was very tender and tasty.
Skirt steak ala plancha- this was the favorite of my dining companions, very tasty and tender.
Wood roasted pig face- this was my favorite, luckily my friends wouldn't try it- their loss.
Had a few desserts and dessert wines.
Out the door for about $75 pp including tax/tip with 2 beers/wine each + the dessert wines.
Had a really good time, thought the atmosphere, service and food were top notch. Was the chef's night off, so didn't get to meet her.
