Lettuce veteran teams with Michael Jordan, Bill Kim restaurants

April 12th, 2017

Dan McGowan, a veteran of Lettuce Entertain You restaurants, has joined Cornerstone Restaurant Group, which is behind Michael Jordan’s Steak House, bellyQ and urbanbelly restaurants.

“Job No. 1 for me will be to help define the urbanbelly menu and concept so we can set it up for future growth in neighborhoods, college towns and airports,” he told me. “Bill Kim is an outstanding and creative chef and the cornerstone concepts have fantastic potential.”

McGowan was the force behind Big Bowl, so it will be interesting to see what’s next for Kim’s restaurants.
