Hubby and I love Top Chef. It’s one of our favorite shows to watch and we become quite competitive over who the winners of the challenges will be. It’s a great show. Especially if you’re a foodie. It’s also a great show if you’re just a reality-tv addict. When Top Chef Chicago winner Stephanie Izard opened Girl & the Goat we decided it would be fun to have it be our “5th anniversary dinner”.

Dinner at Girl & the Goat was perfect. The food was absolutely fantastic. I loved the atmosphere and literally all of the design elements. It is such a great space!

We researched what to order before (mostly via yelp and friends who’ve been). I love that the menu is primarily small plates, so you can get a variety of flavors and taste experiences. The menu had just the right balance of wanting to satisfy curiosity, and food that I was able to pronounce (yes!).

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone (although it’s not a vegetarian friendly meal, there are some vegetarian and some fish dishes).
