Judas Goat Taberna information
Named after the goats that are used to lead sheep off slaughterhouse trucks, this tiny backstreet tapas nook has nailed the art of simply prepared small plates such as duck confit, beef brisket meatballs, and beet and goat cheese terrine. Like its Salt Tasting Room brother next door, it also has a good (although shorter) drinks list of wine and Spanish sherry.
Arrive off-peak to avoid long lineups. If you're intimidated by the choice of plates on offer, ask for a chef's menu selection ($20 to $30) and they'll do all the work for you.
