Tar & Roses in Santa Monica has been open for more than two years now. I remember the first time I ate there, when it first opened, and watched a group of friends enjoy a hedonistic meals of sorts. When a large platter of meat was presented to them, I asked our server what they ordered as I wanted it as well! We were told that it was the Wood Fired Goat Dinner, good for groups of 4 or more and must be reserved at least 7 days in advance. Ever since then, it has been on my list of must-eats. So, when a friend called me recently to tell me he had an extra seat at the table for a Wood Fired Goat Dinner, I quickly accepted. Priced at $48 per person, the Wood Fired Goat Dinner with Moroccan accompaniments, is a three-course dinner, served family style. Once we settled into our table and ordered a bottle of wine (2010 Pesquera Tempranillo, Ribera del Duero, Spain), dinner began:
Since opening 2 months ago, Tar & Roses has been filling the dining room, which seats about 45 in the main dining room, eight at the bar, and 20 on the patio, every night.  Finally, with a little advance planning, I was able to coordinate my dining partners and get a reservation. Tar & Roses offers a "modern and rustic" menu with small and large plates.
