The French Goat



Owners of the French Goat Restaurant in Lewisburg WVProprietors Debbie Porter and Arthur Forgette's dream of opening a French restaurant came to fruition on August, 2015, when their lifelong passion for French cuisine and French wine was fulfilled when the doors opened  for The French Goat Restaurant.




Arthur brings his vast knowledge and 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry and Debbie’s New York marketing and sales background helped make their dream come true. Coming from the DC restaurant world, Lewisburg brings them a less complicated life in this quaint little town.

What a quaint little restaurant that is, Rebecca.  It reminds me of a neat little French Basque restaurant in Genoa, Nevada, by the name of Le Firme.
