Girl And The Goat

Girl And The Goat 809 W randolph st, Chicago 312-492-6262 Did it live up to all the Hype?  That is the question...  Well I think it was pretty damn good and I enjoyed many aspects of this new Chicago hot spot.  I love the look and the feel of the entire restaurant from the black outside to the wide open rustic black interior,  the smell of the wood burning stoves really hits you when you walk in and gets your taste buds tingling.   If you dont know about The Girl and The Goat,  it is Stephanie Izard from top chef along with some great Restaurant owners in Chicago that own BOKA, Perennial and Landmark.   The food was really really good and the menu was very interesting,  I love the small plates so you can try and share a few things.  We enjoyed the Seared Scallops and also Hiramasa Crudo and Shrimp to get us started with some Cauliflower followed by Roasted Lamb Shank and the Pig Face.  The Lamb was just ok but presented amazing and the Pig Face was superb.   All in all a very solid dinner and I will be going back.  One quick highlight was the Pinot Noir list,  it was loaded up with Oregon Pinots and they were all great and hard to choose from.   Liked this place a lot and hope to love it more next time.
