mk Restaurant Review

: Elegant fare and a clear vision have kept the Michael Kornick concept at the forefront of the food scene since 1998. The dramatic yet understated dining room doesn’t have a bad seat, but it’s the second floor balcony that offers the best view (and a bit of a break from the volume below). The menu, which is executed by executive chef Erick Williams, is American but benefits from global influences. The Belgian endive salad is a crunchy, dreamy delight when paired with French green beans, apples and watercress with toasty pecans and Roquefort. Then again, the yellowfin tuna with celery root rémoulade never fails. Next up, it's pan-seared walleye with poached artichokes or Lake Erie whitefish with tender, butter-poached Maine lobster in a red curry broth. Stephanie Mazzone’s desserts include a grownup take on a Pop Tart. Add a memorable wine list and a few flirty cocktails and you have the makings of a great date.
