President of Cornerstone Restaurant Group Josh Zadikoff announced the appointment of Rebecca Muraski as general manager for the group’s Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse and ENO Wine Room. With more than a decade of experience, Muraski will direct all front-of-house and back-of-house operations including hiring and staff training, strategizing and conducting promotions and events and working on menu developments at both locations.

“Muraski is sure to bring her passion to life by providing guests with memorable and high-quality experiences at both Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse and Eno Wine Room,” says Pete Demay, general manager of InterContinental Chicago Hotel. “We are thrilled to have a seasoned professional that can bring a new outlook to the table and aid in the continued success of both restaurants.”

Most recently, Muraski worked as general manager of Sol Toro Restaurant, also a part of Cornerstone Restaurant Group. Prior to her work at Sol Toro, she stood as general manager of the Chicago Firehouse Restaurant, a classic Chicago steak house. Muraski has experience at Chicago Cut Steakhouse as well, where she served as dining room manager.

“I’m excited to combine all of my learning opportunities and experiences to provide guests with a remarkable dining and beverage experience from the moment they enter the door at either Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse or Eno Wine Room,” says Muraski. “My degree in the Culinary Arts provides me with a comprehensive knowledge of both sides of restaurant operations, a necessary skillset for this position. I can’t wait to be back in the Midwest and work with the Cornerstone team on these wonderful venues.”

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
