Best New Restaurant: DMK Burger & Fish

Sophie Mann, Assistant A&E Editor

This year’s best new restaurant winner, DMK Burger & Fish, 815 Noyes Street, took the burger game up a notch when it opened in February 2014. Co-owners David Morton and Michael Kornick may be new to Evanston, but they’re not new to the restaurant scene, opening the DMK Restaurants franchise together in 2009.

DMK’s menu includes six different grass-fed burger options, as well as fish sandwiches and a shake of the day to curb every lunchtime or late night craving. Want fries with that? No problem. Their “Great Chicago Fries” section sports six different deep-fried treats.

Although the menu is reminiscent of a typical burger joint, the decor screams ‘swanky.’ With red lighting, sleek metal stools and transparent walls lined with floor to ceiling windows, DMK creates a cooler, more date-ready atmosphere than similar restaurants in Evanston. From its food to its feel, DMK took Evanston by storm this year and will wear its much-deserved Best of Evanston crown well.
