Description: 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.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 2nd anniversary with a casual dinner at Sable, specifically because we had our wedding at the Palomar Hotel in which the food was catered by Sable (that's a completely different review, but needless to say the food was excellent). We originally had a later reservation but ended up going earlier and decided... More

A group of us enjoyed a fantastic evening at Sable on State in Chicago. Drinks outside on the patio, dinner in a private room. They served us three appetizers, each more delicious than the one before, three main entrees, and three desserts. The pavlova was a hit with all! The small plates all were delicious, and the staff excellent and... More

The tapas trend seems to be reaching other types of cuisine. This was described to us as American tapas, sharing plates …. so we ordered a variety of dishes, polenta chips, some fried cheese thing, creamed corn brûlée, I know it sounds horrible but it wasn't, sliders, mushroom veggie burgers …. there is a choice of half plate or full...

I have dined at many restaurants co-located within a Kimpton Hotel. Sable was a disappointment. The wait person was very chatty and often disappeared for long stretches of time. When I ordered the cocktails, I also ordered the stuffed dates to accompany the drink. After a long wait for the drinks, we had an even longer wait for the dates.... More

Had breakfast here on our last morning in Chicago. Very limited buffet, and even more limited service! $4 each extra for Cappuccino. Total check $58, without service. We could have got a cab to Elly's and back and had a much better breakfast experience, all for less than $58 (including great service!!!)

My partner took me there for my birthday when we were in Chicago. He told me it was highly rated. He had a reservation but most tables were available in the area we were seated.

A modern, lively, bar with great cocktails and interesting "small plates". Maybe the best "deviled eggs" ever! Also, The flatbread is way better than you might think! Try it!
