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.

Then the drinks takes a drink, and hopefully you know the rest. This is one of the best places to go for cocktails and I feel like it's still under appreciated. From the classics to modern creations there is truly something for everyone, and a drink menu so robust you can create your own journey for the evening. The bartenders... More

Stayed in the hotel attached called Palomar. Had curry vegetable and shrimp with coconut. Decent service and quick meal. Good and tasty but not special. Did a decent job and not to efficient.

Fun and trendy whiskey bar. We came only for drinks but did not leave dissatisfied! Seating seems to fill up fast, but that didn't keep us from standing. I give it 5 stars because of the sheer selection of whiskey, and also the service. We had a few bartenders taking care of us and they were on their game! They... More

After checking into the Palomar, we dropped in to Sable, asked to see a menu to see if we would dine there. The host/maître D frostily informed us thar Sable is one of the five top restaurants in Chicago and they are very booked and require reservations made far in advance. He probably didn't actually sniff at us, but it... More

There is absolutely no excuse for any of our employees to act pretentious towards a guest. I assure you that is not common practice here and... More

I had a mimosa, butterscotch monkey bread and the bacon french toast on brioche, it was sooo good! Plus the manager was very friendly and asked like a couple of times if everything was good. Great food and great service

The food and service were just as good as we remembered and the service from Scott was excellent this year. We really enjoyed our meals and would probably go... More
