The Gluttonous Goat Gastropub Opens Friday in Boca Raton
The restaurant itself will set up shop in the old MoQuila space in Boca Raton, just south of Mizner Park. The 1,500-square-foot space has been revamped with a hint of vintage-industrial chic, complete with a temperature-controlled outdoor patio that doubles as an herb garden.
The Gluttonous Goat will take a specific focus with its menu, offering diners a decided Caribbean flare. Described by the owners as simple, yet unique, many of the dishes will highlight the flavors and cooking techniques Marcotte said he developed while living in the West Indies. Entree highlights include an herb charred lamb shank, crawfish and gator stew, pan-roasted monkfish and jerk goat ($18-$20).
American-style favorites with an exotic twist can also be found on the "pub grub," section, small plates that include mussels in a creole sauce; cardamom and cayenne-laced grilled fruit salad; ostrich sliders; and a crawfish pie ($8-$12). Dishes under the "simple and charred" portion are served alone, or with a choice of side, and include a one-pound cowboy ribeye; NY strip; or a half-pound cut of grouper; and ribs. The a-Typical burger, a pulled goat sandwich, and a "poor man's" lobster roll of monk fish and fried green tomatoes rounds out the selections ($10-$28).
Behind the bar, diners will find the same creativity, with a generous use of fresh fruit and juices, through a variety of rotating, food-driven craft cocktails. Absinthe is a main focus, said Marcotte, while boutique wines and craft beers round out the menu.
The Gluttonous Goat gastropub and craft house is opening this week in Boca Raton.
