Girl & the Goat

809 W. Randolph St.
Chicago, IL 60607

Critic’s Notes

Stephanie Izard’s deliciously gonzo approach to farm-to-table dining continues to showcase the unfamiliar and the overlooked with an irresistible mix of boldness, whimsy, and unbridled intensity. She doesn’t lace. She doesn’t infuse. She carpet-bombs with flavor. Think garlic pierogi topped with a rhubarb-chimichurri relish. Goat shank sprinkled with strawberries. Black cod set in Japanese dashi made with goat sausage. Her menu takes more chances and succeeds more often than ever before, and reservations remain hard to get.
