When you’re there, you’ll know it


Patrons of the soon-to-open DMK Burger & Fish in Evanston will have no doubt where they are — thanks to a gigantic neon sign mounted behind a plastic diffuser that is the main feature of the otherwise sparsely finished space.

Co-owners David Morton and Michael Kornick opened for a press preview event this evening showing off a wide array of scrumptious specialty burgers and seafood sandwiches along with fries and milkshakes.

Co-owner Michael Kornick shows off some of the sandwich options.

Kornick says the 28-seat restaurant with bar-height tables will open within the next 10 days to two weeks.

It's in the space at 815 Noyes St. that formerly housed the bakery Fraiche.

In addition to table service, the restaurant will also feature carryouts and delivery service.

The owners, who both live in Evanston, have a collection of five other restaurants, most in Chicago, that have gotten generally glowing reviews.
