While the menu at Goodall’s Kitchen & Bar has a global influence, Texas shines through in many of the signature dishes, such as flavorful bacon-wrapped roasted quail with garlic cream, roasted jalapeño and avocado and the aromatic cinnamon-smoked duck breast with butternut squash, caramelized pear and truffle consomme. Goodall’s offers dishes à la carte or three courses prix fixe (starter, main and dessert) with an optional wine pairings. Desserts include a decadent molten chocolate cake paired with banana sorbet and peanut butter ribbons, and a marzipan-inspired almond cake topped with basil cream and fresh berries.
Breakfast ranges from the simple (pastries, granola and oatmeal) to the standard (farm fresh eggs and potatoes) to the more elaborate (Chai spice French toast or the local-leaning Pancho and Lefty, which contains all the makings of huevos rancheros). With brunch comes the addition of comfort food selections such as steak frites, buttermilk fried chicken and a duck bacon- and Boursin-topped burger. Lunch consists of several light salad offerings and sandwiches, as well as a few larger entree items such as pan-seared Texas black drum or grilled flat-iron steak.
Goodall’s has an extensive menu of carefully crafted cocktails inspired by classics as well. The bar offers a menu from 2:30 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., with offerings such as a cheese and charcuterie plate and fries with roasted Brussels sprouts and celery seed aioli. Between 5 and 10 p.m., dinner specials are available in the retro bar area. Order the PEI mussels tom kha or the Bibb lettuce wrap with pork and vermicelli noodles for something light and flavorful to enjoy on the sprawling porch.
