THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Three Drunken Goats Restaurant Review

: This tapas restaurant occupies a roomy storefront on Montrose’s Honolulu Avenue, an old-fashioned main drag awakened with interesting restaurants. With its chocolate-hued walls lined with vintage photos of Spain, contemporary wrought iron chandeliers and long wooden banquettes, the candlelit space is casual and appealing. A wine bar anchors the front of the room, while an open kitchen lies in the rear. With a menu designed by a former Cobras & Matadors chef, it offers a reasonably familiar, if not strictly authentic, roster of Spanish tapas. One of the best is the tender grilled octopus served atop warm potato salad, chorizo and capers. There are different kinds of croquettes with stuffings like crab, or artichoke and goat cheese, while bacon-wrapped dates filled with chorizo are sensual little packages. A tortilla española is right on point, served with garlicky aïoli, as is the traditional serrano ham paired with manchego. Larger plates include various types of paella alongside braised short ribs and barbecued skirt steak. Churros with an intensely dark chocolate dipping sauce make for a satisfying finale. The wine list is both a Spanish and California affair, with some reasonable values, and 15 wines are offered by the glass.
