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.

Rated one of the top Bourbon Bars in the USA, we visited Sable before a client dinner and we were WOWed by the varied choices and the exquisite service and the knowledge of the staff. We also got to sample the famed Pappy Van Winkle for the first time. (No one ever forgets their first time, right?) The pricing was... More

We were staying at the Hotel Palomar and needed a quick dinner before going to a play. The staff here was tremendously helpful in guiding us to the right things to order and making sure we were able to make the play. Our waiter also suggested that one of the flatbread pizza-like entries was enough for two people. We ordered... More

Sable does it again. Every time I dine at Sable the food and service are top notch. We had brunch on our "staycation". Complete with bloody Mary's.

I had the chicken and waffles with a bourbon infused maple syrup. Very tasty (though not super filling) The staff were great.

Every time my husband and I go to Sable we always order the deviled eggs. They are fluffy, delicious, and with the perfect amount of truffle oil. After having the deviled eggs here, no others can compare. The rest of the menu items we have tried are also delicious and though cocktails are pricey, they are made with such detail... More

We really liked this restaurant! We loved the shareable menu - we ordered 5 different half portions to share between two people and it was a TON of food! A great take on southern comfort food presented in an elegant manner.

Interesting food. Like being in an episode of Master Chef; clever, modern, foodie kind of dishes. Price is okay, for what it is. (Overpriced, but they could've charged more & gotten away with it too). The dishes are generally small and meant for sharing, which is fun. I enjoyed ordering a bunch of small plates one after another. The staff... More

Sable wowed us again! It had been a while since our last visit, and we were looking forward to their updated menu. It did not disappoint. Chef Heather Terhune is a fantastic artist of a chef.

We noted the sound level the moment we walked and requested a quiet table. We were told to wait while one was located. The bottom line is, there are no quiet tables!
