    LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 09: A herd of 100 South African Boer goats chews on tough weeds and dry grasses to clear a steep hillside lot near the Angels Flight funicular railroad on September 9, 2008 in the Bunker Hill high-rise district of downtown Los Angeles, California. Leaders of the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency rented the goats as an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to using gas-powered weed-whacker-wielding humans. Human workers would have charged as much as $7,500 to clear the 2 ?-acre Angels Knoll lot. The goats cost only about $3,000 and there will be no overtime charges. An additional 50 goats will be added to the herd soon to help complete the job in the next week to 10-days. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

    For several months, Chicago foodies have been speculating where Stephanie Izard -- the Season 4 winner of Top Chef -- would be opening her Chicago restaurant.

    On Friday, The 312 Dining Diva revealed through a source that the restaurant, titled The Drunken Goat, will reside in a former manufacturing building at 809-813 W. Randolph St. in the West Loop.

    The building will need a massive makeover seeing as a restaurant has never resided there before.

    Izard is partnering with Rob Katz and Kevin Boehm in the venture, the two responsible for Lincoln Park's BOKA, Landmark and Perennial.

    According to Izard's Twitter feed, she's not wasting any time getting started. She posted this early Friday:

      meeting about the kitchen design at the d goat...wood burning oven and grill and big ass smoker!! yippee!

    So when will the doors open? Right now it looks like January or February 2010, according to The Dining Diva.

    No word on if that smoker has room for a full goat, much less a drunken one.
