Tail Up Goat in DC

Recently, Bon Appetite magazine named Washington DC as the Restaurant City of Year in the US. One of the finalists for their list of 10 best new restaurants in the states is the cozy neighborhood restaurant, Tail Up Goat.

The name is strange, right?

But let me tell me, my husband and I finally made it there last weekend, and nearly a week later, we’re still talking about our meal. shoshanna-dress

We started with a few interesting drinks including pureed watermelon and chili pepper, an Old Fashioned for my husband, and a “shrub” for me.

(Have you ever heard of shrubs? They actually go back to 17th century… these historic old timey drinks are made from rum or brandy and fruit.)

My version was rum infused with fresh green tomato and herbs. So refreshing!

We ordered a few appetizers such as the frittata below and rabbit sausage bites. My personal favorite, though, was the zucchini bread. A thick slice of toasted brown rice bread, topped with yogurt, marinated zucchini, and balsamic glaze. appetisers bread

The next course was a kale, anchovy, and goat lasagna with salsa verde. (there’s the goat you may have been wondering about…)

The slice of lasagna was massive and we shared it. it was certainly one of the most unique things I’ve eaten lately. Isn’t it beautiful (and kind of strange looking too?)

We loved this meal and can’t wait to go back and try some new dishes. Everything that came out of the kitchen and was served to nearby tables looked so good!

As mentioned in my Eastern Market post, the DC weather is still like summer.

On this night, I wore a LWD (as seen here in Santorini this summer). Trying to give it a more urban and fall feel (if that’s even possible right now?), I wore this denim trench vest (which is actually a dress from White House Black Market!)

I’m so ready for fall guys! How about you???

  1. Wow, such a huge recognition for D.C to be named as the restaurant city of the year! This restaurant has a very unique and interesting menu. Many of the dishes you’ve mentioned here, if not all, I’ve never seen offered on a menu or jus haven’t had before, such an accomplishment for the chief to create such creatively unique dishes! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have an amazing week ahead!

    XO,
