A night celebrating artist Theaster Gates at new Kavi Gupta Gallery space on Elizabeth Street. We served signature cocktails, including ‘The Old Cuban,’ a blend of rum, lime and champagne garnished with a sugar coated vanilla bean. Chefs Erick and Michael Kornick prepared delicious passed items for guests, a favorite among them the chopped raw collard green salad with blue cheese, and lemon and garlic croutons.
Chef Erick Williams was honored with the GOOD WORKS AWARD at Goodcity’s Annual Gala last night at the Bridgeport Arts Center. All funds raised benefit Goodcity and its work with nonprofit organizations that are making a difference in under-served communities throughout Chicago. We are so proud of Erick and his work with our local community. Thanks for honoring him, Goodcity!

Chef Williams was in NYC last month, as you know if you heard his and Chef Zoe Schor from Ada Street’s appearance on the Heritage Radio Network. They also made a stop into the offices of The Daily Meal to talk with Ali Rosen about things going on at mk! Watch the video and read the article here.
Michael Kornick’s mk The Restaurant has been a Chicago fine-dining staple for years, and as the restaurant celebrates its 15th anniversary, it is still going strong. We spoke with Erick Williams, mk’s executive chef, who believes his long history with the restaurant has helped him to keep the consistency that diners expect from mk while also moving it forward. “I’ve worked with the restaurant the entire time it’s been open,” he says. “So I’ve seen every change, every tweak, and I’ve used all of those adjustments and tweaks to really build my own repetoire and really, in my opinion, take the restaurant into its next phase that we’re going into in this 15th year.”
