Eating with a Top Chef Winner

One thing Mark and I have in common - we love to eat adventurously. When our hotel concierge said we wouldn't be able to get a reservation at super hot Chicago restaurant Girl and the Goat until like September, we vowed to find a way.

I mean this woman won Top Chef! And her name is Stephanie! I love her already.

So we took a perilous (seriously) cab ride to dinner at an un-godly early hour and planned to wait eons for a table. And, hurrah, the wait wasn't even that bad! Especially when enjoying a surprisingly yummy Chartreuse with a Twist (thanks Brynn!).

I started taking photos of our food about half-way through. We ate A LOT. Everything was so tasty that we ate every bite of everything. The portions were small, meant for sharing, so it was perfect.

grilled baby octopus . guanciale . wax beans . radish . favas. pistachio-lemon vinaigrette

wood oven roasted pig face . sunny side egg . tamarind . cilantro . potato stix

wood fired tomahawk oysters . horseradish . bacon . preserved lemon

roasted cauliflower . pickled peppers . pine nuts . mint

Not pictured but also enjoyed:

chickpeas fritters . romesco . hazelnut hummus . sesame . goat feta

ganache pork fat doughnuts . yuzu blackberries . salted oat streusel . malted vanilla gelato
