Now I can't speak for the dishes that Girl & the Goat is known for (e.g. wood oven roasted pig face or crisp braised pork shank), but I can tell you that their veggie sides - though they do have a number of options - are not critically acclaimed like their meat plates. I made reservations for this restaurant months in advance since my best friend would be visiting town. I knew what I was getting into as Annie had previously told me there were limited options for vegetarians at Girl & the Goat. Though that wasn't true - there is a list of options that can be altered to be vegetarian, the ones I ordered were good, but weren't "to die for." This may be a great place for meat dishes, but I wouldn't come back here for its veggie stuff.
I know some of you might say... "but Girl & the Goat isn't known for veggie options..." - yes, that I know. But what I mean is, there are many non-vegetarian restaurants out there that have very creative and delicious vegetarian plates, yet their focus is not on vegetarian food. In my years of eating and exploring restaurants in different cities, I've come to really appreciate restaurants that put extra effort to make their veggie dishes taste just as memorable as their meat plates.
If you're vegetarian, you wouldn't be missing out if you skipped Girl & the Goat.
