My first visit to Chicago was such a great one. I went to celebrate one of my best friend’s birthday. Our first dinner reservation was at 9pm the day we arrived at The Girl & the Goat.
I heard about The Girl & the Goat two weeks prior to our trip and was lucky enough to get a reservation with such short notice. We had a little time to look around the restaurant before we were seated. The large space is very open, with a large bar area and an open kitchen that you can see into. The space is relatively dark during dinner, but it the warm lighting that is above each seating area makes you huddle closer together, making everything else fade away. It was the perfect way for us to spend our first night in Chicago.
Their menu is amazing. Everything is shared family style, which is something I love.
We were able to try a little bit of almost everything.
The dishes come out pretty quickly so that the majority of what you order will be in front of you at the same time. It’s a great place for conversation as you decide which dish you will be picking from next.
Since my first trip there, I’ve been following their Instagram account and have been dreaming of going back to try other things.
If you’re planning a trip to Chicago… please take me with you. I’ve been dying to go back. Let’s go eat at The Girl & the Goat!
