week 35: girl & the goat

the best thing about having a sister that works at the most happening new restaurant in town is that, 
girrrrrrrl, we be hooked up!
the worst thing is how mortified sister would be if i dare bring the picture taker into her workspace.
but the best thing abut that is i get to practice my drawring skillz!!
and look at how great i look in drawring world!
so a few days ago the whole family piled into the buggy and went on the expressway and went to the downtown chicago and ate at
brought to you by top chef winner extraordinaire stephanie izard!
mum and i prepped ourselves emotionally about eating goat because i don't know about you, but eating goats just doesn't seem like the ideal sunday evening activity and it reminded me about my old friend pepper who is a goat.
but really, a lot of the dishes were non-goat! yay, non-goat! there were a lot of piggies and fishies... 
and here are a few of my faves:
from top to bottom:
chickpea fritters
with tomaters + fresh mozzarella 
pork liver mousse 
with pickles, apple mustarda {apples with mustard seeds! dainty}, and hot and buttery crumpets! 
oh nothing tickles me more than a good crumpet.
pig face!
with eggies and potato stix and a sweet syrupy sauce. 
it wasn't actually in the shape of a face {so you couldn't, like, make it's acquaintance or anything} so this picture is less accurate than the others.... it was basically a brown patty of what tasted like a lighter and airier bacon. 
and all of the components together worked it breakfast-style.
the only goat meat i ate was on the smoked goat pizza.
and it's a good thing, because it was hiding under all of the other toppings {ricotta and apples and stuff}
so i didn't have a chance to get scared and i just put it in my mouth like it ain't no thang. 
my fammy got all four of the desserts...
they weren't as photo-er-picturegenic:
 from top to bottom:
tater donuts with eggplant
fudgesicles with olive oil gelato in a swimmy pool of beer!!!
olive oil gelato tasty pants hallelujah 
nougat with corn and bacon
ahhhhhh charleston chew took a poo!!!!!!!!
berry cake with goat cheese frosting
"hey you know that disgusting animal you'd never eat? check out what we did with some of its breast milk!"
not that this says anything about the cake, because i'm not offended by goat cheese, but jim gaffigan tweeted that just days before i came here and it made me giggle. 
this is stephanie and a goat or a unicorn and the sun!
you might not be able to get a reservation here for like years but you should try anyways.
they even have their own special wine... and a stoopie!

mmmmaaaaaa said the goat: 17 restaurants left!
