Reading Jason Sheehan's description of the Fainting Goat, the watering hole that's taken over 846 Broadway, made us hungry for another taste of their chicken wings. But when we dropped in yesterday afternoon, we found ourselves in fried-item heaven: the Goat was testing out some new appetizer possibilities, all courtesy of Nobel Sysco.
Our favorites: the fried pickles, the mac-and-cheese wedges (whch I'd sampled before at the Red Room -- be still my arteries), the stick pretzel and the "fiesta" poppers. Look for a couple of these to debut on the Goat's appetizer lineup in the next few weeks.
