Bites and Sips at Goal, Opening Thursday Afternoon

New, 8 comments

If you’ve ever dreamt of opening a sports bar that feels more like a restaurant than it does a dodgy spot where a knife fight could break out for supporting the wrong team, you’re out of luck. As of this Thursday, you’ve been preempted. In the space that was most recently (and then only briefly) Food Court LA comes GOAL, a restaurant-slash-sports bar designed by Kris Keith with thirteen flat screen TVs, dark wood accents, a full bar, oversized dark red leather booths, and a plethora of vintage sports photographs from old Dodgers pictures to black and white images of surfers hitting the waves. When it comes to the menu, think bar classics with twists like their signature Pirate Sauce, which gets slathered on specialty burgers like the Juicy J Burger and buffalo wings.

You’ll also find a Baseball Steak with homemade shoestring potatoes and a variation on the traditional grilled cheese. Soft opening on Thursday at noon, GOAL shall serve lunch and dinner and will play just about anything you ask for on their multiple screens from ESPN Classics to Jersey Shore. Note that they soft open just in time to skip St. Patrick’s Day and to thoroughly enjoy March Madness, so if they don’t provide you with ballots, make sure you bring your own. — Nicole Campoy-Leffler
