Goat, not cheese, not curried
I'm looking for some advice. While flipping through the tv I caught some Iron Chef. The secret ingredient was goat. Some of the dishes looked great and made me reconsider the meat. I've only had curried goat and did not like it much. But I don't really enjoy curry. So I don't know if I don't like goat or just don't care for it curried.
Any suggestions on where to try goat prepared any other way?
Thanks in advance.

Haven't had a chance to try any goat in NY yet.
Authentic Mexican places (of which there are not many in Manhattan, although there are some great taco carts) will offer "chivo" tacos and burritos. You can also get it in more Caribbean-style Latin cooking. A Spanish lunch counter on 26th between Bway and 6th does it well with rice and beans.
If you're willing to go to Brooklyn (and you should be), Applewood in Park Slope has had roasted, sliced goat that it gets from a farm in VT on it's menu that was delicious when I had it. Probably worth calling them to see if they have it first as their menu changes frequently.
