Girl & the Goat, Chicago

3 of 12

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.
