MK Restaurant, Chicago: 6 reviews and 5 photos

by shrimp56

We finally put our finger on it -- MK is very much like a French bistro -- excellent raw ingredients, classically prepared with a contemporary twist. The service is professional, but far from snooty. All in all an excellent experience

Favorite Dish: On the top is my salmon -- described on the menu as "grilled over hardwood charcoal with chinese mustard glaze, bok choy, shiitake mushrooms and a ginger soy vinaigrette"
My soup was lobster bisque -- the broth was poured around the small pile of lobster in the center. Complex and delicious: "scented with cognac, leeks, carrots, parsley and tarragon"
