Sean Coyle, who founded Bourbon Blue, is revving up a new project in Manayunk.

The Goat's Beard - and Coyle is not referring to the hair beneath the chinny-chin-chin of a farm animal but to the native Pennsylvania plant (Aruncus) - is taking shape at 4201 Main St., the former Main Street Bar & Grill and what for many years was Thomas'.

He calls the menu "whiskey bar meets bold American cooking," with many gluten-free options. Chef Dan Connelly (a former owner of Northern Liberties' Copper Bistro) will obtain as much of the American menu from local sources as possible. Industrial-meets-rustic atmosphere.

Opening is projected March 11.
