Since winner Top Chef season 4 in 2008, Stephanie Izard has become a staple in the Chicago food scene. What began with one amazing concept, Girl & the Goat, has evolved into an amazing trio of restaurants that cater to a variety of appetites. The original restaurant features small plates, which are not only perfect for sharing, but also allow you to have a bit of everything. Her “Sweetie’s Potatoes” are so good you don’t need ketchup. Don’t be afraid to substitute with your favorite veggies and whatever is locally and seasonally available to you.
