On Cloud Wine at ENO Wine Room and Michael Jordan’s Steak House!


The Magnificent Mile Wine Bar and Steak House Name New Beverage Director and Sommelier

ENO Wine Room and Michael Jordan’s Steak House, both located within the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel, are thrilled to welcome Sommelier Mark Canak to the team as the new Beverage Director. Receiving his Sommelier certification with guidance from the world’s best sommeliers, he looks forward to offering unique expertise and expansive knowledge to the guests at ENO and Michael Jordan’s Steak House.

“Canak’s interest in the history and culture of wines brings new inspiration to the beverage program at both locations,” says Myron Markewycz, General Manager of ENO Wine Room and Michael Jordan’s Steak House. “His philosophy and knowledge of wines from around the world allows guests to explore various regions as they sip their way through the list. This ensures that every guest will have a one-of-a-kind experience – each time they stop in.”

Beginning his career in the industry at the age of fifteen, Canak is no stranger to the restaurant and bar scene. After moving to the Windy City in 2006, he left his mark as beverage director for many Chicago establishments such as the Park Grill in Millennium Park, Tesori at Chicago Symphony Center and, most recently, The Metropolitan Club in the Willis Tower. He has participated in numerous local and national competitions, earning accolades such as third place at Geja’s 42nd Annual Pro-Am Wine Tasting Contest and third place in the North America category at the Sonoma Wine Country Weekend Sommelier Star Competition. Canak was even invited back to Sonoma as one of the “Best of the Best” for the 10-year anniversary of the Sommelier Star program. Locally, Canak was a featured sommelier at 2017’s Bon Appétit presents Chicago Gourmet, served as guest speaker at Chicago’s 2017 River North Business Expo discussing Wine Etiquette for Business Entertaining, and is an active member of Chicago’s Second City Sommeliers group and Guild of Sommeliers.

With an expansive portfolio and expert knowledge, Canak is excited to bring hard-to-find wines to the imbibers of ENO and provide unique opportunities to meet the winemakers, as well as offer creative cocktails and a vintage wine selection at Michael Jordan’s Steak House. Under the direction of Canak, guests can look for immersive experiences at the corner wine bar and steak house, taking both beverage programs to the next level.
