Outpost at the Goodland Restaurant Review

: Outpost at the Goodland offers creative food and an eclectic, beach-style environment with seating poolside or in the open interior with views of the pool and bar. Though the menu changes seasonally, always available at breakfast are the house-made pop tarts, baked and topped with a sweet custard icing. We like the freshness of the farro salad with pomegranate seeds, thyme, mint and creamy vinaigrette dressing. At dinnertime you’ll find dishes ranging from shrimp Louie to mushroom bao, kimchi fries and duck tacos. There's a raw bar, too. Expect a decent selection of cocktails and a moderate wine list.
