MK The Restaurant
Endorsed by Food & Wine, USA Today and Esquire and even frequented by President Obama, chef Michael Kornick’s Near North Side restaurant continues to be a favorite year after year. Locavores appreciate the seasonal menu, but everyone loves signature dishes like the grilled baby octopus and the roast bison ribeye. Housed in a renovated warehouse—which means high ceilings and industrial accents—MK is contemporary and sleek. For special occasions, request to sit in the upstairs loft, which is slightly more private.
