Archer & Goat is in the bottom of a townhouse just below 120th Street, and it’s an attractive space with white brick walls, a small backyard, and an excessive amount of light bulbs hanging from the ceiling. It’s about equal parts restaurant and bar, and while you don’t need to eat a full dinner here, there’s a bunch of food like roasted duck, a burger, and some pretty solid arepas. The next time you need to grab a drink with coworkers, some parents, or someone who wants life advice and for some reason thinks you’re capable of providing it, get a few bar seats or a table out back.
