Get ready to queue up for another meal from celebrity chef and Chicago restaurateur Stephanie Izard. The Top Chef winner has been teasing her latest Chinese cuisine concept, called Duck Duck Goat, for months now, hosting preview dinners and posting Instagram photos of her research trips to China. On Thursday, the new restaurant (located at 857 W Fulton Market) will open its doors, offering up a menu consisting of noodles, dumplings and fried rice.

Anyone who has waited months for a reservation at Izard's eternally popular Girl and the Goat is well aware that prime seats at the chef's latest venture are sure to be a hot ticket for months (if not years) to come. Curious diners can stake their claim on a table at OpenTable, but don't expect to show up on opening weekend—those reservations are long gone. We'll find out more about the menu and the decor at Duck Duck Goat as those fortunate enough to snag seats on Thursday document their meals on Instagram—in the meantime, we'll be commiserating with the other reservation-less schmucks lining up at Little Goat Diner.
