La Mansion del Chivo

There’s a dumbwaiter, real waiters, local wines and classic ’80s videos competing with baseball on the TV. And the food? Leave a pile of bones behind after a chivo asado (barbecued goat).

Cured hams hang behind the large bar in this tasca-style restaurant that does solid, stick-to-your-ribs food. Ignore the menu and ask for the special of the day instead.
