The Scoop: Patois to open in former Rustic Goat space downtown

Downtown’s The Rustic Goat will soon be replaced with a new, multifaceted concept. As reported by the Riverfront Times, the restaurant at 2617 Washington Ave., will close and reopen as Patois Eatery & Social Lounge on Saturday, April 15.

“We’re rebranding and going in a different direction,” said Johnnie Franklin, marketing director for the restaurant’s new management team. “We’re going to change the whole concept to more of a Caribbean-Creole-American fusion eatery and social lounge.” Franklin said ownership hasn’t changed, but the restaurant is under new management.

The Patois menu will boast a wide variety of items from jerk chicken and oxtail to seafood and pasta. Weekday lunch and Sunday brunch service will also be available.

The new direction will also include a hookah lounge and live entertainment. On Fridays, Patois will host After Work Office Lounge, or AWOL, which will spotlight live Caribbean music and a DJ playing between sets. On Sunday evenings, the restaurant will play host to live comedy acts. Franklin said only minor cosmetic changes will be made to the space.

Franklin said in the interim before the official reopening, The Rustic Goat will remain open for previously scheduled private events, but regular service has ceased.
