FULTON MARKET—While in Aspen for the Food & Wine Classic, Stephanie Izard will be previewing some food from her upcoming Chinese restaurant, Duck Duck Goat, which is on track to open in the fall.

WICKER PARKWell that's all she wrote, folks. Beachwood Inn, after a protracted dance to its portended end, closed for good with a private party this past Wednesday evening. Visit their Facebook page for their goodbye message. [EaterWire / DNAinfo]

BUFFALO GROVE—Two-and-a-half years after the theft took place, a Buffalo Grove Thai restaurant finally reported that a former worker stole over $16K in food (cases and meals). The woman is said to now be in Fargo, ND and the restaurant decided to report it just in case she decided to return to the area. The restaurant, which is unnamed, is said to be on the 1100 block of Weiland Road. A quick Google search points to Oishii Thai, but a call placed to the restaurant went unanswered this afternoon.
