Chicago’s Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard is done playing games. No more hype. No more anticipation. It’s happening now. This is for real.

Welcome to Girl & The Goat, a new dark, sexy, smoldering den filled with all the braised meats, robust beers, wood-fired oysters and Crispy Pig Faces you can handle.
