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.

Unexpected twist on a deviled egg

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... read 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

Four of us ate here and we loved every bite. Between us we had the corn brûlée, toffee pudding, scallops, octopus, lamb, burrito, bacon Jam, and the plate of assorted meats.

The food was classy, tasty and dependable. This spot made for a great date night for the carnivore and his vegetarian wife. We shared the pretzels and deviled eggs then she had something green and I slammed down the fried chicken and waffles.

Large private back-room for our group. Service was excellent and staff was very knowledgeable on all topics of wines and food-prep. Food was not your normal American cuisine. a selection of choices prepared with healthy veggies and light sauces .

John the bartender was what made this place separate from all the other upscale drinking establishments. The Food was good. The room is very cool. But, the friendly knowledge of John is what I won't forget. Some places come off very stiff and stuck up if you ask for any recommendations. Not here. Breathe of fresh air to the craft... More
