At the Fainting Goat, whimsical new American small plates like pork fries pair nicely with libations like the Limoncello-laced Brucey's cocktail. Pull up a chair at the large wrap-around bar and peruse their extensive bottled beer list and craft cocktails in a casual, brick-walled gastropub space that stays open late.
