About me

Five-time James Beard Best Chef of the Midwest nominee Michael Kornick deftly guides the contemporary American cuisine at mk, Chicago's acclaimed urban hot spot. Sophisticated twists on contemporary American fare, a seasonal degustation menu, and artisan cheeses. mk's extensive and thoughtfully-chosen wine list was the recipient of Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence in 2006 and 2007. At the table, informed, personal, and refined service rounds out the experience.

Chef Michael Kornick, founder and owner of mk, is a nationally-recognized leader in the culinary arts. Kornick works with the freshest seasonal ingredients and stays true to classical cooking techniques. It is his belief that ingredients should speak for themselves.
