Description: Sable Kitchen & Bar: Classic Era Atmosphere in Chicago's River North...
Sable Kitchen & Bar: Classic Era Atmosphere in Chicago's River North Neighborhood Step into Sable Kitchen & Bar. Discover what you've been waiting for: A new American gastro-lounge that artfully reinstates the cocktail to its rightful throne, a place where you'll lose yourself in a menu of Chef Heather Terhune's soul-satisfying social plates of delectable hors d'oeuvres, fresh fish, meats, sustainable selections from the farm and garden, alongside a collection of hand-crafted brick-oven flatbreads. Adjacent to Kimpton's Hotel Palomar Chicago, Sable is a refreshing update for today, where the glamour of the 1940's mingles effortlessly with modern industrial touches. The effect is undeniably chic and immensely comfortable. Exceptional Food to Match Exquisite Drinks For some, Sable emerges as the spot of choice for dining any time of day. For others, it becomes a much-needed chance to revel in the purity of handcrafted cocktails and a chance to sample a diverse selection of wines. But for all, Sable surfaces as a dining destination in Chicago's River North neighborhood on par with the city's most acclaimed restaurants. Drop in for a very special drink. Share a plate or two. And enjoy Sable's special blend of contemporary class and soothing Chicago hospitality.

Great Cocktails, Atmoshere and Food

Stop here during a Chicago shopping trip. Everything about this place is top-notch, service, location, cocktails, interior, and food. We tried a variety of food items and were very pleased with everything. Cocktails were different and delicious. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

I found Sable while on business for a couple of days in Chicago. My colleague and I were hungry but wanted a variety.. I would classify sable Tapas. We ordered smoked trout spread, cheese curds, chicken and waffles and scallops. For dessert we had both the English toffee pudding and the sorbet. I highly recommend Sable as a great spot... More

Sable Kitchen has some of the best cocktails in Chicago. The atmosphere is also good but I do truly go there for the the cocktails. My husband and I both got old fashioned cocktails and they are among the best in Chicago.

Not a large menu but a nice variety of different food. we tried the Barrata salad, pan seared scallops, pork belly flat bread (made with pears and so good), turkey confit and fried chicken thighs. Everything was excellent. Large wine selection to choose from and the bar area is also nice and spacious and just... More

Who would think that a deviled egg could be so good? The truffle oil makes this staple expensive, but it's a must try. The atmosphere is modern--it is a long narrow restaurant, but it still feels spacious because of the tall ceilings and windows spanning the space. This restaurant is located inside the Palomar Hotel. I had the scallops, also... More

This was where we stopped for a late snack and drink on our last night in the city. We LOVED it! The drinks/cocktails are truly unique and were wonderful. The appetizer menu is also unique and full of tasty surprises! It was a more expensive night for us ($200) but it was well worth it for what we got. Ask... More
