The instantly popular The Goat by David Burke opened in early April and is the seventh Garden State restaurant for the Hazlet native. Internationally awarded, celebrity Chef Burke, who grew up within a half mile of The Goat , now has 18 restaurants worldwide.
The Goat by David Burke, located at the former Piero’s, is an Italian American bistro with a fun, local vibe serves superior food in a casual atmosphere. The restaurant designed by Chef Burke has undergone extensive cosmetic renovations, and yes, it has a spirited goat-themed décor with original artwork!

Chef Burke - who was named EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 – is known for his pioneering spirit and sees potential in the Bayshore area including towns from Keyport to Highlands, and he is investing there. He believes the Bayshore is on track for continued interest and growth, which it has experienced in the past several years.
“Piero’s lasted for 30 years, that says something about the location,” explained Chef Burke about his investing in the Bayshore. “Somebody went to the Meatpacking District in New York first, right? Somebody had to be first in Asbury Park. 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!”
About the name, Chef Burke said he wanted a simple, strong name and “goat” tied into Red Horse in Rumson by using another animal theme. And it fits with Burke’s intent to make The Goat by David Burke a “go-at-it” one-stop, fun restaurant, an easy choice for a local spot where guests have quickly become regulars visiting several times a week.
In Monmouth County, Chef Burke also owns Red Horse by David Burke in Rumson, and manages Drifthouse by David Burke in Sea Bright for The Stavola Family, who have owned Driftwood Cabana Club where the restaurant is located since 1957. Burke also owns Orchard Park by David Burke at the Chateau Grande Hotel, East Brunswick; 1776 by David Burke featuring Topgolf Swing Suite, Morristown; and is culinary director for Son Cubano, West New York and Ventanas, Fort Lee.
