New restaurant, The Blue Goat, coming to former Peking on Grove.

Posted on Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 12:00 AM

The Blue Goat is coming to a prized location next to the Westhampton Theater, and promises to add a different dimension to that area's food and drink scene. Demolition is in progress at 5710 Grove Ave., where the Peking Restaurant held forth for three decades but closed more than a year ago.
 
Now it's in the hands of Chris Tsui and team Osaka — owners of Sushi-O, Wild Ginger and the two locations of Osaka Sushi & Steak. General manager Ren Mefford says the new spot “will be a very different concept for us, and we're super excited. We're always trying to do something that sets us apart.” 
In this case, a complete redo of the 1940s building will make it the group's largest business so far, “not fine dining,” Mefford says, but an affordable Euro-focused menu with a notable chef. Count on design-conscious Tsui to make a big decorative impact; he's teaming with Helen Reed to complete the interior. Watch Style Weekly for updates as the project progresses.
