The newest Michael Jordan’s Steak House will open in the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile.

The restaurant is a partnership between Strategic Hotels & Resorts and Cornerstone Restaurant Group.

The restaurant will occupy the second floor dining room and first floor lobby bar space, replacing both Zest restaurant and The Lobby Bar. Construction will begin this spring.

“I’m excited about bringing a Michael Jordan’s Steak House to Chicago, especially to the world famous Magnificent Mile,” says Michael Jordan. “I’m already looking forward to dining here.”

The restaurant will be 6,300 square feet with seating in the dining room for 160, seating in the bar for 91, and two private dining spaces that will seat 18 people each. In this new arrangement, Cornerstone becomes the sole license consultant for the restaurant, which will be operated by the InterContinental.

“Given Cornerstone Restaurant Group’s excellent reputation, successful local and national properties and passion for the restaurant industry, we are delighted to forge this relationship to bring such an iconic restaurant brand to the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile,” says Richard Moreau, executive vice president, Strategic Hotels & Resorts.

The new restaurant at the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile is the third location for Michael Jordan’s Steak House, with others at Grand Central Terminal in New York City and the Mohegan Sun Casino Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut.
