I go to Chicago for three things: fantastic food, rooftop drinks and beautiful architecture. 

And when you go (or even if you're from Chicago), you have to go to The Girl and The Goat. It's a restaurant that boasts some of the most mouth watering food in the city. You can eat pig face, duck tongue, beef tongue, and every single part of a goat. Sounds adventurous (and it is!) but is SO delicious. Make a reservation WAY in advance though! It fills up quick. We had the fortune of walking by right when they had a cancelation, so we snuck in.

But long before this, and right after our plane landed, we were brunching across the street at TGATG's sister restaurant, Little Goat. French toast with fried chicken, a savory/sweet breakfast burrito and a cinnamon bun "the size of a baby's head" (as the waitress described it). 

Definitely some great grub and worth checking out. I know it's a favorite of Walk in Wonderland's too.  :P

That area of the city, West Loop, is like the Chelsea of Chicago. There's great little caf├ęs and pubs, and plenty of cool murals to do photo shoots in front of. I had just flown in, so I was keeping it easy in a sweatshirt, trousers and high-tops. The pleated trousers elevate an otherwise super casual look. 'Athleisure' in my otter way. 

Are you adventurous enough for beef and duck tongue?? How about an ear?
