About the restaurant
1913 Restaurant & Bar is no ordinary restaurant. Named for the founding year of the City of Hope, 1913 is a place where every plate is thoughtfully curated to nourish one’s body, heart, spirit, and soul. Executive Chef Christian Eggerling and his diverse team of culinary talent make healthy food fun, sometimes fancy (because we all deserve it), but never boring. Fresh wild-caught seafood, locally sourced meat, garden-harvested vegetables, decadent desserts, curated wine list and craft cocktail program make 1913 the ideal destination for any occasion. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and private events can be experienced in our modern and elegant restaurant or outside on the patio with a picture-perfect view of the local foothill mountains. Whether you are a team member, local or visitor to our historic campus - our commitment to locally farmed, sustainability-focused food is not just a pledge, it is a promise.

About the restaurant
Chef Stephanie Izard and her team are thrilled to join LA’s vibrant restaurant community and continue our tradition of serving tasty, bold-flavored foods in a fun and lively family-style setting. A few favorites, like goat empanadas and sautéed green beans, will be back on the menu. Stephanie and her team have also crafted new dishes inspired by California produce and local flavors, like carrot-tahini dip with tahini tofu, and curried goat with radishes, pickled vegetables, and masa chips. To enhance the experience we offer a selection of wines from around the world with a focus on small producers, a rotating list of craft beers, and a list of fun cocktails created by our bartenders.

Located in the Arts District at 555 Mateo, Girl & the Goat offers dinner service Monday through Sunday, plus brunch Sunday. Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads and adventurers!

What a wonderful night. We started with a bottle of Cab Franc. We then ordered our dinners. The food was outstanding. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and her recommendations were spot on. Great place for dinner!

We were a group of 7, celebrating our friend's birthday. Our server, Irvin, was very friendly and took great of us. I always order the same thing every time I go and it never disappoints -- the Sprouts & Squash Salad with grilled chicken. So good. They even comped our friend's dessert since it was her birthday. Great experience!
