We’re not sure we’ve been to the Wild Goose Meeting House and not seen its dining area chock-full of people. Co-owners Yemi Mobolade and Russ Ware have plenty to be proud of; nearly five years into Wild Goose’s existence, its corner of Tejon and Boulder streets has become one of the most happenin’ spots downtown, thanks in part to its laudable coffee and booze selections. In for dinner, we net two sandwiches, a Canadian Goose ($13) and a Harvest Moon ($11), picking salad with one, chips and salsa with the other. The former’s simple as can be — ham, Swiss and Dijon panini pressed between slices of good sourdough, with a little gooseberry relish within, not enough to upset the familiar flavor combo at its core. The latter’s more fetching, a vegetarian mix of mild Anjou pear, caramelized onions, brie, Swiss and pecans. Taste-wise, the brie and tangy bread dominate; pear and pecan contribute more texture than flavor, though the pear’s freshness cuts the dairy nicely.
