NO GOAT @Resto.... what else to get?

linguafood Feb 26, 2010 08:25 AM

So the goat ain't gonna happen. We just don't have enough people. We're still waiting to hear whether a smaller animal might be an option for a party of five.

Frankly, I wish I had known this a lot earlier, to be able to make reservations elsewhere.

But perhaps some of you can recommend dishes that Resto does particularly well, in case we end up having to order a la carte.

I hear the moules frites are good?

    if you want good goat, you've got to head out of the boroughs...Bangane in Flushing (off Northern and 165th St.) does a delicious Korean style goat dish.

    go for the goat, but stay for their Spicy Chicken and Stuffed Chicken in Soup.

      I love the moules frites, especially the one with thick-cut bacon. I also love the short rib and burger. The menu changes a lot but everything is good.

      Also, order the deviled eggs on crispy pork toast!

        Linguafood, that's so disappointing. I was looking forward to hearing about it.

        I definitely second the deviled eggs and mussels.

          Yah. You can imagine how disappointed I am, as I was very much looking forward to eating it '-(

          Anywhos. Maybe we can still have a small beast killed for our small group haha.

          Even if it ends up being chicken embryos and bivalves....
