Page 2 of 2

Gluttonous Goat is not just a name, according to owners Brian Marcotte and Michael Amato, but a blend of two symbols that create the vision of what the two men would like to share with their guests. The word gluttonous meaning to over consume; the goat symbolizing ambition and independence. Combined, they represent the idea of "over consumption with ambition, to gain Independence."

Marcotte, formerly of Rebel House in Boca Raton, has extensive restaurant experience, holding various positions in the industry during the course of his career including mixologist, general manager and executive chef. Marcotte is also a restaurant concept developer, and a partner for three establishments in the West Indies, where he travelled extensively before relocating to South Florida. His partner, Amato, has over 20 years of business experience as a successful investment banker and entrepreneur, with an extensive background advising various restaurants on how to maximize profits and build their brand. Together, they plan to be very hands-on with Gluttonous Goat, be it behind the bar, in the kitchen -- or even at the front door greeting guests.
