The Silly Goose Restaurant Review

: Everything on the menu has a kooky name at the Silly Goose, and that’s appropriate, because nothing therein resembles the same-old-same-old you often see at other independent restaurants. For lunch, for example, you’ve got the Pink Panther, a toasted hoagie piled with smoked brisket, kale, carrot/cabbage slaw and Gorgonzola. For dinner you’ve have the Darth Vapor, a porcini-crusted filet of grouper in lemon grass broth with caramelized parsnips, Brussels sprouts and more. You can’t go wrong with the King Kong couscous plate: curried shrimp over sesame couscous with ginger, cashews, coriander and avocado. For dessert, go for the Saylor Jack, a rhubarb-ricotta cheesecake crowned with tropical fruits and nuts. There’s a short menu of crowd-pleasing wines at moderate prices if you want a sidekick to your meal. The Murphy’s Law Riesling, for instance, will nicely handle that curried shrimp dish.
