The Girl & the Goat and Upscale Relaxed Dining Experience

September 27, 2013 by

Girl and the Goat

The Girl and the Goat was established in the Windy City by Top Chef Season 4 winner Stephanie Izard, and Boka Group in 2010. Since then, it’s been serving up fun Mediterranean dishes made with local ingredients and is well known for its craft beers, wines and rustic environment.

Patrons can choose from a variety of seating options, from the comfortable lounge, to standard table seating, or they can choose to sit at the bar.

Approachable But Different

The Girl and the Goat atmosphere is a blend of upscale-relaxed. Sit at wooden tables minus tablecloths, and get great service by waiters and waitresses wearing jeans, tennis shoes, and a black tee shirt with a funny slogan like “Goats gone wild.” It’s a great eatery that’s affordable, though you can spend more if you so choose.

Girl and the Goat Menu

The Girl and the Goat’s Stephanie Izard won Best Chef: Greats Lakes when the James Beard Foundation doled out their annual culinary awards in 2013.

Diners will find a slew of creative options, but the Girl and the Goat menu makes it easy to navigate through all the choices. The menu is sorted into three categories: vegetable, fish, and meat with some crossover dishes in each category.

Patrons enjoy bread made fresh daily, and while the menu changes frequently you’re sure to find a dish to pique your curiosity and delight your taste buds. It’s a menu that offers something for everyone, and new creations are added regularly.


Wines and Beers

The Girl and the Goat blends their own wine, and they serve beers on tap from Three Floyd’s and a few others. If you visit at the right time, you may even have the opportunity to taste the elusive collaboration beers Stephanie and a couple of her friends have crafted up.

For those who are not quite that adventurous, there are plenty of bottled beers to choose from, too.

Girl & the Goat does take reservations but is always ready to welcome walk-ins. They open every day at 4:30 until 11 p.m. during the week, and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

Next time you’re in Chicago, the Girl and the Goat is worth a visit!
