Thursday is opening day for Stephanie Izard's Southeast Asian-inspired restaurant, Duck Duck Goat. The announcement is big news for Izard's fans, as the chef announced the restaurant back in February 2015. The opening, once again in collaboration with the Boka Restaurant Group, was originally planned for last year. Reservations are now available on OpenTable.
Izard's restaurant at 857 W. Fulton Market will initially only serve dinner, offering "reasonably authentic Chinese cuisine," according to a news release, kicking off at 4:30 p.m. daily. This is Izard's third restaurant following Randolph Row siblings The Girl & The Goat and Little Goat.
Izard and her colleagues took trips to Southeast Asia for some R&D to prepare for the opening. The news release described a menu that's divided into seven sections: Dim sum, hot soups, cold dishes, noodles, fried rice, main and large dishes. The restaurant will also feature Taiwanese-inspired desserts including Taiwanese pineapple cake and almond tofu panna cotta.
Expect much more on this highly-anticipated opening this week.
