America's Coolest New Diners
Little Goat, Chicago
Top Chef season-four winner Stephanie Izard is prepping to open a retro diner in October 2012 next to her critically acclaimed Girl & the Goat in the West Loop. She promises blue-plate specials, farm-fresh patty melts, and breakfast inspired by snacks from around the world—and available all day. But the ultimate indulgence will be an order of pulled-pork sandwiched between pork-fat donuts.
Don’t Miss: Fresh-baked bread from the attached bakeshop and, for the inspired, cooking classes in an upstairs private room.
