Restaurant and winery Goat & Vine plans to open this fall at 1941 Preston Rd., Ste. 1040, Plano. The upscale eatery will offer a variety of steak, pasta, seafood and chicken dishes.

Goat & Vine, which is owned by Chicago-based restaurant group WeEat Hospitality Group, will also offer its own private label wine selection, according to managing partner Paul Marrin. Patrons will also be able to join the restaurant’s wine club.

“We’re always doing something a little bit different, so every now and again we’ll do some specialty wines for the season,” Marrin said. “[Customers] can either do a one-bottle- or two-bottle-a-month membership. They can either come dine in and get that bottle of wine with their dinner or they could come in and pick up that bottle of wine to-go.”

Goat & Vine is one of three Dallas-Fort Worth restaurants scheduled to open this year from WeEat Hospitality Group.

“We also have Honey Berry Cafe, which is coming to Dallas in July,” Marrin said. “Then we'll have Bulldog Ale House that's going to be opening in Dallas as well in September and then we'll have Goat & Vine opening in Plano.”


Marrin said WeEat Hospitality Group has 18 locations in Illinois and two restaurants in Wisconsin, with plans to add 20 more locations in the DFW area in the coming years. The building being taken over by Goat & Vine was previously Abbey Road Eatery & Ales. A phone number is not currently available. www.goatandvinewinery.com
