Chef and owner Jose Salazar created Goose & Elder as a casual restaurant and bar showcasing American comfort food with a focus on fresh, healthy, local and sustainable ingredients.
We are open all day, six days a week (closed Mondays), with brunch on Saturday and Sunday and a late-night bar. Located across from the vibrant and historic Findlay Market in Cincinnati’s OTR, we think of ourselves as the ideal neighborhood restaurant and watering hole.
Our cozy space features a relaxed and airy dining room and an inviting full-service bar. Our menu ranges from juicy grass-fed burger to classic shrimp cocktail to chicken schnitzel and avocado toast. Our seasonal salads showcase the best ingredients from the Ohio Valley. The drinks aren’t precious, just well-made, including classic cocktails, such as the Harvey Wall Banger, White Russian and Tequila Sunrise. We offer a full selection of domestic and imported beers, including many local favorites. The rotating wine list is curated and concise, with a variety of palate pleasing options. Most importantly, our vibe is casual and approachable, so whether you’re enjoying a laid back business lunch, a wild night out, or brunch with the kiddos—we’re that place where everyone feels welcome.
Come share some laughs and good times with us. We want to fill your belly, warm your soul and make you feel like part of our flock. In our opinion, Findlay Market is the heart of the city, and we couldn’t be more excited to join the growing community, build friendships and do our tiny part to help it thrive for years to come.
