Last fall DMK Burger Bar and Fish Bar debuted at Navy Pier carrying over some of the favorite menu items from the popular Lakeview location.
The grass fed beef at DMK Burger Bar has a list of options - some topped with chorizo, guacamole, chipotle aioli, fried egg, marinated tomato and other goodies. There's also a bison burger, a turkey burger and a house veggie & grain burger. A few delicious-sounding salads are on the menu that also can be ordered with griddled chicken breast or grilled salmon. Fry options include parmesan & truffle cree, sweet potato with lemon tabasco aioli and Wisconsin cheddar & scallions.
On the Fish side, options range from fish & chips to calamari to gumbo and clam chowder to sandwiches of cod, crispy chicken, salmon or crab as well as fish sliders and a Satchmo Po'Boy with shrimp & crawfish. I opted for an order of two crispy shrimp tacos with cabbage slaw and guacamole. The tacos were fantastic and it left me wishing I could order a larger portion of the shrimp. Even with my usually light appetite, the two tacos didn't do it for me. I could have easily eaten two more - or a big plate of those shrimp with some cocktail sauce. So, I'd plan on it as an appetizer to a burger or sandwich or double up on the order.
There's also a cocktail and beer menu and you can enjoy it in their small dining room or out on the patio overlooking the lake. For more info, visit www.dmkrestaurants.com.
