The Girl and the Goat is so overrated

Resident Foodies say: OK, we decided to wait in line for 2 hours to get a table at Stephanie Izard’s Girl and the Goat in Chicago. The ambience is great, with a warm, inviting atmosphere and an open kitchen exposed to people at the bar and tables. On Yelp, the restaurant has a remarkable 4 1/2 stars with over 1,000 reviews. We, however, came away a little bit disappointed. The food, while creative, lacked flavor, and the dishes were not always executed well. All in all it was a fun atmosphere, but the food leaves something to be desired.

The Kalbi style beef ribs were chewy and downright flavorless, a sad imitation of the Korean dish.

The wood fired walter’s chicken was a little bit dry and overdone.

We did enjoy the two veggie dishes–chickpeas fritters and roaster cauliflower–which were the two best dishes we had that night.
