My wife is a "foodie" , whatever that means. Visiting Chicago, and heard the trends on Girl/Goat.
I am along for the ride.
The setting is very noisy. Architecture alluring. Seating is so close together, that a table must be pulled completely out of line to allow rear patron to enter/exit ! Forget any intimate conversation. Might as well have made a reservation for a table of 20....that's essentially what the feel is.
Food is OK, not great. small plates to share( the new cool thing everywhere, I guess). Very greasy mouth feel on most items. Did not finish any items because grease/oil became overbearing after few bites.
Wine list is adequate.
Food pricing is reasonable.
Would never return.
