The Goose, set to open this Friday, April 26, features a menu with unique offerings such as Goose Bumps—two shots of premium vodka with two portions of caviar and The Down Comforter, made with smoked Wagon bourbon, Amaro Lucano Anniversario, pistachio Orgeat, and Australian coffee bitters

The new speakeasy, which accommodates just 42 people, is located within the Mercado del Lago plaza adjacent to Crust Simply Italian.

Intimate seating areas, candlelit tables, and art deco-inspired decor combines with offerings of classic cocktails including the Vesper martini, Clover Club, and Vieux Carre, plus new modern iterations developed by the bar team. OnlyFeathers combines Platinum vodka, fresh passionfruit, and lemon juice, and is topped with Prosecco; and Take a Gander that is made with Japanese whiskey, plum sake, pomegranate tea syrup, dry vermouth and clarified milk punch. There are also whiskey flights and a well-curated spirits selection.

Pair your drink with a selection from the food menu, which is from the Crust Simply Italian kitchen, with sharable plates that include tangerine spiced olives, fried calamari, charcuterie board, select pizzas and desserts.

“As a sister concept to The Ostrich and Blue Heron, you will see many similarities; however, The Goose will stand on its own with many differences like the original decor, elevated wine list, separate food menu and of course some newly creative cocktails,” says Michael Merendino owner of Crust Restaurant Group. “We will also be offering Goose Bumps which will be an insanely fun way to enjoy caviar and vodka! Come down and say hello."

Crust Restaurant Group that operates Crust Simply Italian restaurants, Crust Pizzerias and two other cocktail lounges—The Ostrich and Blue Heron own and operate The Goose.

Open Sun.-Thurs., 5 to 10 p.m.; Fri. and Sat., 5 p.m. to midnight.
