On a recent dark and rainy morning, some friends and I ventured through the slick East Village streets to hole-up for brunch at Goat Town. The space was retro-fitted by the Haslegrave brothers and is home to some of the best food I’ve ever been privileged to eat -courtesy of chef, Jessica Wilson. The backyard boasts a garden with a large variety of vegetables and herbs that are all used in the beautifully crafted dishes. The dinner menu slings everything from a wide selection of oysters down to house-made ice creams. Aside from the obvious high design of the space – heavy in woods and ceramics, there’s attention to detail in aspects such as the audio system (spinning a great collection of vinyl records), the linens and bottle-wear, and even the printed ephemerals (menus, matchbooks, postcards, etc). Highly recommended.
