The Girl and The Goat!

Morning everyone, I hope you all had a fab weekend. I am still uploading photos from our trip and have a few to show you. Before heading off I must say I became a complete nerd and did my research on all the restaurants, bars and places we wanted to go. The wise thing to do I thought was to also ask a few friends who are, or have been locals for recommendations and The Girl and the Goat was a clear favourite for Chicago.

The menu was so interesting and we are definitely not afraid of trying new things, apart from snails which I don't think I could ever try but maybe I will surprise myself one day. You know me - mad about food that I was really hoping the restaurant would live up to the recommendations I had been given and read.


As usual, we started the night off with a little cocktail.There really is no better way to start the night and this drink definitely hit the spot! We liked them so much we stuck with them for the night.

We ordered such a selection of food and decided to get something from each section of the menu. The mantra in the restaurant is that  all of the dishes are for sharing like tapas style. I love tapas but I hate that everything comes out together, you are faced with a table full of food that is going cold before your eyes. This was definitely not the case in The Girl and The Goat. The dishes came out at a steady pace and there was just enough time left in between each dish that you were excited for the next.

We took a pause before ordering desert and it was definitely the right thing to do. It gave us a chance to breath, order another cocktail and prepare ourselves for the mouth watering bowls that landed on our table by our lovely server. She recommended both of these deserts and we were oh so happy we listened to her. Homemade donuts with peanut butter and jelly - something I have never seen on a menu and it was delicious but the chocolate cake was that warm gooey type and just up my alley.
Needless to say there was empty plates all round and I am surprised we didn't need to be rolled out the front door.  We weaved our way out through the hustle and bustle of the restaurant and hopped in a taxi and headed back to the hotel.  Ready for the next day of adventures!

Love BB xx
