The Goat, a new restaurant in Rittenhouse, offers a reuben burger on its menu.

Fergie Carey and Jim McNamara of Fergie's Pub are opening a new bar/restaurant in Rittenhouse Square called The Goat.

The Goat is located at 1907 Sansom St., formerly home to Oh! Shea's, and includes two bars, two fireplaces and 118 seats.

From the kitchen, chef Adrian Geronimo – the brother of the chef at Fergie's Pub – will serve "elevated comfort food." Guests can order the ancho chili-braised short rib, reuben burger, "angry" mussels, green chili barbecue jackfruit sandwich and other inventive bar foods.

To drink, there will be beer and cider on tap, nearly two dozen bottles and cans, and a dozen wines by the glass. Speciality cocktails will be added later this winter.

After the grand opening, The Goat's hours of operation will be 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily. The kitchen will stay open until midnight and happy hour will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
