    In the crudo at MK in Chicago, the daily catch of fresh seafood is drizzled with lemon Agrumato oil, and ingredients like blistered shishito peppers, seasonal apples or torpedo onion dust. Read more

    You pay a price for service, which was phenomenal! Celebrating a special occasion? They go out of their way to make it memorable. Must try the fried olives stuffed with chorizo. Wine list is huge.

    Tuna was really good. We had a private table upstairs and had a group of 10. Jesus was our server and he was the best. Butternut squash ravioli was delicious. That's a guaranteed hit.

    A five-time James Beard Award nominee, Chef Kornick has been lighting up Chicago’s dining circuit since 1993. Try the lobster bisque: creamy and cognac-infused, with a decadent sprinkling of saffron.

    Like the food, the stylish bi-level dining room achieves a balance between elegant and easygoing. Make sure to save room for dessert - pastry chef Kate Neumann is sure to be a rising star.

    Make sure to meet Chris the Waiter and Neko Harris the bartender because they'll make you feel right at home. The S'more dessert and Bison entree are a must...

    Topflight foie gras and crisp truffle frites are both gimmes at this lofty spot, but even a humble carrot-cumin soup is a stunning victory. Order the Pineapple Express for dessert. Read more

    I'd eat the endive salad all day every day if I could! Whitefish/lobster was alright, but dessert rescued the meal!

    Sounds gluttonous, but get an extra order of truffle cream with your fries - you'll be glad you did.

    Try the “cake and shake,” a slice of layered buttermilk chocolate cake paired with a vanilla malted milkshake served in a double shot glass.

    This place is a bit overrated. The service is great, but the food is just decent. You can definitely take your $$ and go somewhere else. I would go back only if I was already around the neighborhood.
