Stephanie Izard Takes on the Year of the Goat with the Announcement of Her Third Restaurant

Duck Duck Goat will be the Top Chef alum’s take on Chinese cuisine

Stephanie Izard will open her third restaurant in Chicago this summer.

The Lunar New Year has changed over to the Year of the Goat, and one Chicago chef is ready to make it count.

Stephanie Izard, a Top Chef alum and one of the Windy City’s best known chefs, has won the hearts of Chicago’s food-lovers with her two restaurants, The Girl & the Goat and Little Goat. This year, she’ll be bringing a third property to West Loop with Duck Duck Goat. This new concept will focus on Chinese cuisine, served Izard’s way.

Chef Izard has been making Chinese food with her family for years, and a trip to China with her husband and colleagues offered a firsthand experience with the dishes she wants to deliver. “While there, we visited Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai and Hangzhou and were able to experience first-hand the local flavors“ said Stephanie Izard.


Look forward to hand-pulled noodles, dumplings, and more when Duck Duck Goat opens this summer in the West Loop.
