From 94.3 The PointAt this point, you have to live under a rock to NOT have heard of Chef David Burke. He is an internationally awarded, celebrity chef with six restaurants in the Garden State! Well, actually…..it will be seven restaurants in New Jersey because Chef Burke is opening his third restaurant in Monmouth County. Here is what Chef David Burke has to say: “Piero’s lasted for 30 years, that says something about the location,” explained Burke according to the press release. “There’s a ten-mile stretch of highway that is underserved. There’s a renewed interest in the area. People want to get out and dine out and they are tired of going over to Highway 35 to eat at chain restaurants. We will draw from the local Bayshore communities, Staten Island, Middletown, Colts Neck, Red Bank and beyond. We are close to GSP exit and there are lots of office and banks. Build it and they we will come. I grew up near here and I’m very excited about THE GOAT!” Here is everything we know about The Goat so far:
Let me start with the obvious: yes, this restaurant will have, “goat-themed décor along with original artwork,” according to the press release.
David Burke’s wants this new restaurant to be a, “one stop, fun restaurant! [It will be] an easy choice for locals where guests quickly become regulars visiting several times a week.”
The Goat will serve, “modern Continental and American cuisines,” in which Chef Burke will put his own personal spin on.
According to the press release, some of the main dishes already being promised include, “Chef Burke’s famous burger using dry-aged prime beef, chicken, lamb, pizzas, several house-made pastas, a variety of refreshing salads, lobster roll, seafood dishes and steaks and a dessert menu that will not disappoint.”
Chef David Burke is promising one thing among the food and drinks being served: local is king. This menu will include local food products, locally distilled spirits and craft beers.
The Goat is scheduled to open in early April of 2022 – so we are basically there.
