Here’s a great way to start the week: Eater is reporting that Stephanie Izard is set to open a new restaurant in the West Loop called The Little Goat. To be sure, this won’t simply be a remake of her nationally acclaimed restaurant, Girl & The Goat. Instead, it’ll be “a classic East Coast diner,” featuring “old school diner favorites without making them all gastro foofy.” That means you can look out for everything from a club sandwich to a freshly made tuna melt. Talking to Eater, Izard claims that she has a fondness for diners while growing up in Connecticut, but that there “just doesn’t seem to be diners in Chicago.” Look for it to open in the fall.
