We are focused on bringing you local flavors that reflect the seasonality of the Santa Barbara Farmers Market. We are seeking to exemplify regional cuisine such as that in Europe and other parts of the world. Our feeling is that by using as many local ingredients as possible we can develop dishes that are truly Santa Barbara's cuisine.

"Well, "Chez Graham" restaurant was excellent! Because we wanted to try everything, so we got 8 dishes for our stomach. Everything was great! Both cold and hot dishes are amazing. There are many good restaurants at Randolph & Halsted; this is definitely one of them."

"My wife and I are "food opportunists", meaning that we try to eat the best stuff when we travel... We did go to many great restaurants during our 4-day travel in Chicago, and Girl & the Goat totally blew our minds away. First it is reasonably priced. Second, the staff is very knowledgable (and fun to talk to). Third, the ambience was great. and... the food was amazing!!! We totally recommended it to anyone."
