Dining out with friends can determine the alpha of the group based on such qualities as who eats the most red meat or who howls at the check first. Reach the pinnacle of popularity with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of upscale pub fare at The Feisty Goat Pub.
The Feisty Goat Pub’s kitchen crew enhances a menu of hearty American grub with an upscale culinary twist. Hunks of fresh-baked baguette scoop up creamy crab dip ($11) made from succulent jumbo lump crabmeat, and white-corn tortilla nachos ($12) heave under the weight of beef chili, melted cheese, and sour cream, which extinguishes the heat of accompanying spicy jalapeños by screaming “Stop, drop, and roll!” at the plate.
The Big Goat burger stays true to its name with 8 ounces of Angus beef buried beneath a layer of molten goat cheese, fire-besmirched red peppers, and garlic aioli ($10). Chefs coat crispy fried chicken in a fiery buffalo sauce and stuff it alongside bacon in the buffalo wrap ($9), and they flout German law by butterflying a bratwurst and serving it open-face beneath a mound of sweet onions and peppers ($8).
