Near North

MK The Restaurant

868 N. Franklin St.
Chicago, IL, 60610, United States
TEL: (312) 482-9179

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.

Insider Tip:

If you don’t drive, make plans to call a cab before leaving the restaurant, as it can be hard to find one to flag down in this neighborhood.
