Little Goat, Stephanie’s highly successful follow-up to Girl & the Goat, encompasses a diner, coffee shop, bakery and bar. In March 2016, Stephanie opened her third restaurant, a Chinese concept called Duck Duck Goat in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. In 2019, Stephanie’s Peruvian-inspired eatery, Cabra Cevicheria, opened on the rooftop of The Hoxton, Chicago.

Among other projects, Izard has a product line called “This Little Goat,” consisting of cooking sauces and spice mixes for home cooks and a nationwide meal kit service called “Girl & the Goat by Stephanie Izard” in partnership with Goldbelly. Izard’s first book, “Girl in the Kitchen,” was released in 2011 and her second book “Gather & Graze” was released in April 2018.
