Neil Campbell, who owns Old City’s Race Street Cafe, is teaming up with Andy Shahan to revive bygone Mt. Airy haunt, Goat Hollow. A rep for the two told Grub today that the opening will come later this month. The restaurant and bar, which closed in 2004 after a 17 year run, has been undergoing major renovations since last spring, and when reopened as an “American Brasserie” will sport a completely updated look. Monk’s alum Adam Glickman is signed on as chef, and will turn out what’s described as “hearty entrees, burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads and more” when service there resumes. The fact that Campbell and Shahan are working primarily with local businesses like Metcalfe Architecture and Design, Philadelphia Salvage, Fillippi Bros., Inc. and Design Nehez for the project shows that it truly takes a village to raise a defunct restaurant.
