  • Upon being seated for brunch at Goat Town, order the biscuits straightaway. Salty on top and not too dense, they're served with house-made poblano jam that was a happy accident in the kitchen.
  • Why "Goat Town"? "Gotham" means "goat town" in old Anglo-Saxon.
  • finish your meal by splitting a double scoop of both the burnt honey and the salted caramel ice cream
  • Village Voice is excited to have Goat Town at the 2012 ChoiceEats food fest! Full list of restaurants here: http://ow.ly/8QjDQ
  • Interesting bathroom
  • Biscuits with poblano jam were so fantastic I could eat them everyday and not care if I became a heifer.
  • One of my favorite spots in NYC. Glenster cocktail was great. Side salad and shishito peppers were amazing w/ chicken and waffles. Caramel sundae is essential as well.
  • Try the oysters & caviar
  • Biscuits and jalapeo jam are a must. Then try the pork & grits.
  • Winner of Best New Restaurant in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! The perfect of 2011 food trends, exectured near flawlessly.
  • Must try: Knickerbocker Sundae ($9) combines three scoops of salted-caramel ice cream, chewy caramel cake and thick sauce all made from scratch. Mini pretzels sprinkled on top add a salty crunch.
  • Slowest service ever. Don't come here on the weekends.
  • Beautiful restaurant but food is over-priced.
  • Get the oyster/wine deal for happy hour.
  • Oysters and burger. And anything smoked, or anything pickled. Done and done and done.
  • The N'Orleans breakfast scramble tastes like the sea.
  • The Kale Salad and Brussels Sprouts are amazing
  • Salted carmel sundae - better than Big Gay's salty pimp.
  • Must-haves = the octopus, kale salad and the salted caramel sundae.
  • The brunch is AMAZING! The biscuits with poblano jam are particularly delicious and a must-order.
