Best Top Chef Restaurants

Girl & the Goat (Chicago)

Jeff Kauck

Girl & the Goat, Chicago

Season 4’s understated Stephanie Izard was in the bottom rankings of almost every Quickfire challenge, but she ultimately prevailed—as the first female Top Chef—with her pork- and seafood-heavy farm-to-table comfort food. She recently opened this New American restaurant in Chicago with a strong craft-brew menu. Diners come in search of farm-fresh menu items with bold flavor contrasts, East Asian accents, and a sense of humor, from Ham Frites (yup, French fries with homemade ham salt) to Crispy Pig Face with daikon, chimichurri, and baby arugula.

Don’t Miss: Won’t dine on swine? Opt for other signatures like smoked goat cheese pizza with tart-cherry soffrito, black kale, and ricotta.
