Time Out says

Inspired by the cuisine and drinking culture of a region on the western coast of India, Bar Goa brings the tropical vibes to River North inside a space where eating and drinking go hand-in-hand. The concept comes from Rina and Manish Mallick, the co-owners of Randolph Street Indian restaurant ROOH, who launched Bar Goa as part of a newly-formed hospitality group. Naturally, you can enjoy the savory prawn and chorizo fried rice or a pork vindaloo poi-wich (named for the pita-like bread its wrapped in) served here without a drop of alcohol. But the dishes here are hearty for a reason—they're better for soaking up cocktails like the gin- and banana-based Toes in the Sand or a beer and shot combo called the Chicagoan Handshake, which features cashew Feni (the Malört of India).
