As the ferris wheel turns, it turns out that not one but two DMK restaurants are heading to the tourist trap on the lake. Michael Kornick and David Morton have signed on to bring both a DMK Burger Bar and a Fish Bar to Navy Pier, according to a release, and both are slated to open in the summer.
Both locations will have small indoor spaces yet large outdoor patios in addition to walk-up windows for fries and boozy frozen drinks. In addition to the original locations in Lakeview, there's also DMK Burger Bars in Lombard, Soldier Field, and a combined burger and fish spot in Evanston.
DMK's restaurants join Lettuce Entertain You spots Big Bowl and Frankie's by the Slice, Goddess and the Baker and India Garden on the pier. Tourists will have upgraded food and drink options this summer.
