“The Fainting Goat on U Street is launching “Picnics at the Goat” on Monday evenings” – Check out the Plans for the Rest of the Summer

1330 U Street, NW

From a press release:

“Summertime on the east coast often evokes memories of Maryland blue crab feasts, lobster boils on the beach and gatherings with friends and family. Celebrating the most delicious of summer’s bounty, The Fainting Goat on U Street is launching “Picnics at the Goat” on Monday evenings, a series of monthly-rotating, casual family-style suppers focused around different iconic summer foods. The series kicks off tonight, July 20, with a juicy fried chicken feast complete with hot biscuits, smoked Gouda mac ‘n cheese and other summer sides.

Executive Chef Nathan Beauchamp is inviting groups of two or more to come enjoy summer-favorite fare, such as Maryland blue crabs, peel n’ eat shrimp, and a classic lobster boil complete with Andouille sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob. Ranging from $25-$40 per person, the feasts are available every Monday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The full schedule and menus are below.

JULY – Fried Chicken Picnics

(7/20, 7/27)

Chef Beauchamp is frying up juicy chicken and serving alongside family-style sides of creamy-style coleslaw, freshly baked biscuits, smoked Gouda mac ‘n cheese, and to end the meal, homemade strawberry shortcake.

AUGUST – Maryland Blue Crab Feasts

(8/3, 8/10, 8/17, 8/24, 8/31)

An Eastern Shore native, Chef Beauchamp’s childhood was spent cracking crabs on the Chesapeake Bay. He’s bringing in peak-season Maryland Blue Crabs, and serving with the sides he loves most – corn on the cob, coleslaw, peel n’ eat shrimp, and for dessert, homemade summer berry cobbler.

SEPTEMBER – Lobster Boils

(9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 9/28)

Chef Beauchamp will host a classic lobster boil evocative of a summer gathering on the beach, with fresh lobster, corn on the cob, Andouille sausage and red potatoes, and serve a freshly baked seasonal fruit pie to end the meal on a sweet note.

The picnics will range from $25-$40 per person, with a minimum of two people depending on the week’s menu. Menus are subject to change based on availability. Reservations are required and should be made in advance by calling the restaurant at (202) 735-0344. For more information, please visit www.faintinggoatdc.com.”

    I’ve wanted to go here since its opening. anyone up for a picnic?

    We went last night, thanks to this. It was the first time we’d been there, and let me tell you, it was incredible. I’ll post the review I gave them on their Facebook page, because I can’t stop raving about it:
    I’d forgotten how great a dining experience could be. We had a reservation for the Monday night picnic, and were promptly seated. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding. Every single course had us going, “wow!” I’ve never had coleslaw so good. The biscuits were so dense and delicious. The mac and cheese, corn on the cob, and fried chicken were unbelievable. Then came the strawberry shortcake for dessert. Just like my mom used to make, but better! $25 per person for all this amazingness! I wish this Monday chicken special went all summer long (seafood isn’t my thing). We will be back! Thank you for such a stellar dining experience!
