Graham Elliot and Stephanie Izard.

A couple of Chicago's top chefs are taking different approaches to this week's impending snowfall.
Graham Elliot, owner of the high-end GE and his newest venture, Grahamwich, isn't taking any chances, deciding to close up shop for a couple of days and letting the public know via his Twitter feed:
"Winter blizzard warning: GE closed tomorrow and Wed, G'wich closing early tomorrow, closing Wed."
But Girl and the Goat
's Stephanie Izard
is toughing it out, encouraging her customers via Twitter
to visit this week -- especially since reservations are usually so hard to come by at the West Loop hot spot.
"Good week to come in. The snow already causing cancellations. Be a man. Put on your boots. And come hang at the goat."
Perhaps she needs to tell Elliot to man up.
