When in Chicago, Girl and the Goat should be at the top of your list to eat. This wonderful place is in the West Loop which is a cool area that didn’t exist 25 years ago and now hosts a bunch of great restaurants and bars. Girl and the Goat is owned by Stephanie Izard. She is the Executive Chef and a Top Chef winner. The food is really good. Pictured here are the Goat Empanadas, Beet Salad and Green Beans. Goat is kinda there thing and those empanadas were wonderful. The Short Ribs and Scallops were crazy good too. Everything is served small plate style to be shared. They also have an excellent wine and beer list and the atmosphere is lots of fun. One word of warning though, you have to be in the mood for loud. Not a quiet place. And Tyeler and I had to get a pic in front of the funky goat mural!
