CHICAGO | Duck Duck Goat is one of several restaurants in Stephanie Izard’s growing West Loop Empire (Girl and the Goat, Little Goat Diner) and sees her offer diners “reasonably authentic Chinese food”. It’s food that’s part inspired by Izard’s travels through China, part influenced by the food found across America’s Chinatowns, and her childhood memories of Chinese takeout.

The fit out of the Duck Duck Goat matches the influences of the food. It’s on theme and very pretty, with five zones making up the 100 seat restaurant. One room is inspired by 1940s and ’50s Chinese cinema culture while another is full of lazy Susans and inspired by American Chinatowns. The bar meanwhile has a Hong Kong street food influence about it. Red paper lanterns, vintage posters and the like all combine to provide the various spaces with a lot of atmosphere.

The menu is quite large, with about 50 items providing lots of food for thought. Think things like seafood fried rice, xi long bao, hongshao rao (braised pork), and crab rangoon. Drinks wise, there’s a lot to like here – a good selection of wines, with an emphasis on whites is joined by numerous craft beers in cans and an impressive cocktail selection.

It’s all very tasty stuff, served by friendly, energetic wait staff who are very knowledgeable and happy to give recommendations. Having said that, some of the dishes do seem overpriced – while very tasty you can’t help but know that there are equally tasty options available around town for cheaper.

Being a Stephanie Izard restaurant means that the place is always busy, but thankfully Duck Duck Goat does take reservations. There’s also the options for walk ins which, if it’s only one of two of you, can be a good, relatively short wait of an option if you’re happy to sit at the bar. If you want takeout, there’s a takeout window facing the street that offers a casual, pared down selection of dishes for both lunch and dinner.
