Beloved Chicago chef Stephanie Izard’s Fulton Market Chinese restaurant will reopen on Saturday for brunch, almost a month after a fire forced its closure. Duck Duck Goat, one of the celebrity chef’s collaborations with Boka Restaurant Group, closed on November 3 after a grease chute fire. Management made the announcement via a Facebook post.

Duck Duck Goat opened in March 2016, giving Izard her third restaurant following the successes of Girl & the Goat and Little Goat on Randolph Restaurant Row. Izard, a Top Chef and Iron Chef champion, has since opened a Peruvian restaurant, Cabra, on the roof of the Hoxton Chicago hotel, just east of Duck Duck Goat in Fulton Market. Izard traveled to Peru for restaurant research for Cabra much in the same manner that she visited China for research on Duck Duck Goat.

Boka and Izard have plans to open a Girl & the Goat in LA, and independent from the restaurant group, Izard has opened a taco stand inside the United Center, the home of the Blackhawks and Bulls.

A Boka rep wasn’t immediately reached for comment.
