All but hidden on a shaded block near the river, Fat Goose serves a more refined take on gastropub dinner fare. 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 Vacherin fondue, chicken liver mousse, and octopus with potato and crispy shallots. The seasonal menu sidesteps the usual burger-and-fries headliner, relying instead on subtler options like a pork loin with celeriac, spiced prunes, and rosemary, strip steak with golden beets, and broccoli crowns with fermented black beans, chickpeas, and cipollini onions.
