After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1998, Stephanie Izard decided that food was her real love and went to culinary school.  After winning the "Top Chef" competition on Bravo, she opened the restaurant Girl & the Goat.  The restaurant has received numerous commendations, including a 2011 James Beard Best New Restaurant nomination.  The website TripAdvisor has just announced that Girl & the Goat has been rated by travelers as one of the top ten U.S. favorite restaurant destinations.

Congratulations Stephanie!
