The Feisty Lamb: Absurdist, Surrealist, And Museum-Quality; Take A Look Inside

The decor is just as eclectic as the globally inspired cuisine

Last week, we reported on the opening of Micah Edelstein's new Goose Hollow brunch spot, The Feisty Lamb, and this week we sent photographer Dina Avila to bring back images. Here's what she found:

  • striking photographs taken by chef Micah Edelstein's sister, Jillian Edelstein, whose work just happens to hang regularly in the National Portrait Gallery in London (talented family, no?);
  • dozens of vintage umbrellas hanging from the ceiling, including a crocheted parasol, circa 1921;
  • a vintage necktie sculpture that she imported from her last restaurant, Miami's neMesis;
  • a former alleyway that's been entirely made over with standing herb garden walls, repainted and reupholstered tables and chairs, and blacktop painted up like a Joan Miró floor mural;
  • a laminated bar that features currency from Edelstein's world travels, as well as words indicating all the things that her new friends in those countries promised to do for said money (sing, move, etc.);
  • and a vintage turntable for The Feisty Lamb's Friday and Saturday night dinner crowds (diners are encouraged to bring their own records for a spin).

Want to see what's in store for eats? Check out the PDFs of the seasonal sample brunch menu below. The Feisty Lamb serves brunch five days a week (note that the menu below is only a sample, as chef Edelstein changes the menu regularly with what's available in season). In addition to brunch, it serves a la carte and tasting dinner menus on Fridays and Saturdays.
