Girl and the Goat- 809 W Randolph St
If Restaurant Row had its own mayor, it would probably be world-renowned chef, Stephanie Izard. Her original concept, Girl and the Goat, now has many adjacent concepts on the strip, including Duck Duck Goat, which serves Chinese fare on Fulton Market, Little Goat Diner for brunch on Randolph, Cabra, which serves Peruvian fare on The Hoxton Hotel’s trendy Fulton Market rooftop, and Sugar Goat, Izard’s most recent addition which serves desserts on Randolph. Although you probably want to try all of these, start with the classic Girl and the Goat (currently reservation only with outdoor seating available). Try dishes like roasted bosu oysters with yuzu-harissa butter, finger limes, and shio kombu, or goat satay served with tahini yogurt, smoked tomato-pickled rhubarb relish, pine nut dukkah, and naan (no judgement if you need to google a few of these ingredients). After you’ve tried it, it’ll be no secret why Izard is considered to be the G.O.A.T.
