The Fainting Goat

The Fainting Goat took over a building on Broadway that’s been a half-dozen restaurants and bars over the years, giving it a good cleaning, fixing the elevator and introducing a menu with an Irish accent, with Irish nachos (covered in corned beef) and the best chicken tenders in town. But the greatest innovation by far is the bar on the rooftop patio, which saves the servers (or customers) from having to run down three flights of stairs every time they need another round. Not only does this secluded sky-high spot offer a lovely view of the mountains, but it has wi-fi and ashtrays, since the deck is definitely far enough from the front entrance for smoking to be legal here.
