The actress is in Chicago for her latest Goop pop-up store and stopped by former Top Chef champ Stephanie Izard’s Little Goat Diner Tuesday night to kick off the celebration — for what sounds like an unforgettable feast.
“So excited to welcome @goop to the goat” the restaurant’s Twitter posted, while Paltrow took to Instagram to thank Izard and the restaurant for the hospitality. “@stephandthegoat Thank you for the most unbelievable meal last night, you and your team are so talented. What a total dream for us! #gooppopchicago #littlegoatxgoop”
Paltrow even posed for photos with Izard and the kitchen staff. “Tried to stand on chair to be as tall as @GwynethPaltrow …got scared I’d fall! fun havin @goop at @littlegoatdiner,” the chef Tweeted.
The restaurant is known for putting delicious twists on comfort food dishes — French toast, fried chicken and a towering Mighty Goat Burger — but it looks like the Goop crew stuck to lighter fare. The special menu included green papaya salad, ramp marinated shrimp (Paltrow was even caught sneaking a few shrimp in the photo below!) and a kohlrabi salad to start, pan seared halibut and sauteed green beans for the main course and then a horchata rice pudding with a rhubarb semifreddo for dessert. The group sipped on Dom Pérignon.
