Today is the Chinese New Year, February 19th, and the beginning of the YEAR OF THE GOAT. Xin Nian Kuai Le!
No kidding. Stephanie Izard announced a new restaurant to open as part of the Boka Group this summer in Chicago. Her third restaurant will be located close to The Girl & The Goat and The Little Goat Diner at 857 West Fulton.
During her trip to China in January, she visited Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai and Hangzhou and was able to experience first-hand the local flavors. “Since then, I’ve been spending time in the kitchen practicing the different noodles I learned to make while there,” said Stephanie Izard. “I am looking forward to another trip to Taiwan this year to continue my research of Chinese cuisine."
COOKGIRL was lucky enough to host the launch event at Little Goat Diner on Tuesday night, February 17th and if the sauteed shrimp & pork belly with fried grains, noodles, & tamarind vinaigrette is even a hint of what’s to come, we’re in!
Roughly a sixth of the world will celebrate Chinese New Year. COOKGIRL joins in the celebration in anticipation of DUCK DUCK GOAT.back to blog home >>
