Take a Gander Inside County Barbecue, DMK's New Spot

Photos: Marc Much

Thursday is the day the DMK empire expands into the growing barbecue scene. The space, from exterior to interior, designed by Jodi Morton of 2 to 5 Design, bears David Morton and Michael Kornick's attempt to bring Southern flavor to Chicago. Outside, checkered pastel paint sets it apart from much of the Taylor Street competition (as will the menu). Inside, the country motif is evident with stuffed deer heads, giant American flags, and red plaid booths. 90 seats (50 outdoor) are set around butcher block tabletops and at the vintage bar.

A chalkboard sums up Kornick's vision for the food program, proudly decreeing that his "ancestors didn't fight their way up the food chain to eat vegetables." The meat will be available for consumption on Thursday.
