All but hidden on a shaded block near the river, Fat Goose serves a more refined take on gastropub dinner fare. Longtime local Leszek Gesiak focuses on upscale rib stickers and well-dressed cuts of pork, fish, and the title fowl. Spotless hardwood, earthy hues, and a broad line of back windows make for an atmosphere fit for both low-light dinners and breezy weekend brunches; an affordable cocktail lineup rounds out the menu. Starters include fried chicken croquettes, duck confit, and grilled vegetable maki. The menu sidesteps the usual burger-and-fries headliner, relying instead on subtler options like a roasted Moulard duck breast and hangar steak: a thick, tender cut with adobo marinade and salsify, while routine seared scallops and balsamic roasted chicken play backup.
