Progress continues on Stephanie Izard's upcoming Chinese-influenced restaurant, Duck Duck Goat, as the city's issued a building permit for the Fulton Market space. The restaurant is on schedule for a late-fall opening, according to Izard's partners at the Boka Restaurant Group. Specifically, Saveur reports the opening will be in November.
Meanwhile, Izard's been busy this summer. She gave attendees at the Green City Market Chef BBQ a sample of the Duck Duck Goat's cuisine earlier in July at Lincoln Park, with a taste of noodles. She's also slated to appear at the inaugural Chicago Food + Wine Festival. The three-day event kicks off Aug. 29, also in Lincoln Park, and attendees will likely have the chance to once more preview food Izard plans on serving at her new restaurant. Izard's also appearing at a $250 per plate charity event on Saturday at Izard's Little Goat with a performance from singer/songwriter Zella Day. Coinciding with Lollapalooza, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation's Musically Mastered Menu aims to raise money to preserve music education at public schools.
Crews continue to work at the restaurant site at 857 W. Fulton Market, where there's also a take-out window planned. Keep it here for more updates on the project.
