I was recently alerted by a reader to the rumor of The Flying Goat's plan to open a new location on the South Hill. And, while there are basically no details on this as of yet, there is some truth to this rumor, in a way.
I checked in with The Flying Goat who has informed me that they are opening a new restaurant on the South Hill. But this new restaurant won't be the exact same and won't use The Flying Goat name. The new South Hill restaurant will be called Republic Pi and will also have pizza, just " slightly different".
With my own research I've also uncovered that Republic Pi will be located at 611 E. 30th Ave. And, that address should sound familiar to some. That's because the space was Vintages @ 611, a well known restaurant that was open for only a few years.
The photo above shows the building will undergo some work before the new business opens. Currently The Flying Goat says Republic Pi should open sometime around June or July of this year.
We will continue to watch for more info on this and try to get out any more details we can find as we get them. Until then, Republic Pi does have a page on Facebook for some more information. That page can be found at-
