Biscuits and Layer Cakes: The Scoop On the Wandering Goose, Opening Late Spring
At long last, the empty corner space that once housed Tilden (403 15th Ave. E) is being reborn as a Southern-tinged breakfast and lunch spot, The Wandering Goose.
Owner Heather Earnhardt was co-owner (with Erika Burke) of the warm, inviting Volunteer Park Café from 2007 until last year; fans know how down-home yummy the food is there; I've got a special weakness for the figgy maple scones.
At Capitol Hill's Wandering Goose, Earnhardt will flaunt her North Carolina roots: There'll be biscuits! Grits and gravy! Country ham, pickles, fried chicken, and (what I'm most excited for) layer cakes! She’ll also offer baking classes and biscuit mix to go in a small retail space.
If all goes as planned, the Goose will open in June. Follow her progress on the restaurant's Facebook page.
