Your Neighborhood Restaurant & Bar
Featuring delicious approachable dishes created from scratch, sourced locally when possible. Our Chef, Paul Kostandin, brings together the essence of traditional comfort food with a rustic flair. Chef Paul interprets the bounty of the surrounding area, exploring an ingredient-driven cuisine that begins with the rediscovery of heirloom products and redefines what it means to cook and enjoy modern american comfort cuisine.
Laid-back, eclectic and unpretentious, at The Blue Goat we make our guests feel at home from the moment they walk in the door. To enhance the experience we offer a selection of wines from around the world with a focus on small producers, a rotating list of craft beers with a celebration of local Richmond breweries and a list of fun cocktails created by our bartenders. With a little something for everyone our staff is always happy to help create the perfect dining experience for every guest that joins us. Exposed Brick, soft lighting and an unexpected quirkiness encourage guests to settle in, get comfortable, and have a great time.
