Launched in March in West Fulton Market
Chicago star chef Stephanie Izard, Top Chef’s first female winner, whose constellation of always-packed West Loop restaurants includes Girl & the Goat and Little Goat Diner.
Any of Izard’s whimsical renditions of Americanized Chinese fun food, running the gamut from shrimp toast ($15) to a signature golden-lacquered Peking duck ($59) that would feel right at home in Beijing.
Mushroom- and chamomile-infused cocktails that favor savory notes, served in a bar glowing with fairy lights.
The restaurant is a warren of small dining rooms that distill the decor of every Chinatown diner into an exuberant mash-up of dangling silk lanterns, jade dragons, and scarlet chintz. (duckduckgoatchicago.com)
