Sable Kitchen & Bar: The Back Story
There's an undeniable panache tied to America, circa 1940. Hollywood's leading men and women were figures of true character and glamour. It was a time when bartenders were revered for their innate cocktail talents. Above all, it was a period when the bar itself was a sanctuary, a place to meet, retreat and relax.
Into this rich heritage we've introduced a sexy, modern ethos and have arrived at Sable Kitchen & Bar, adjacent to Hotel Palomar Chicago. Designed by the Puccini Group, Sable is a gastro-lounge offering escape for those in Chicago's eminent River North neighborhood.
Dedication to Detail
The 40-foot bar, one of Chicago's grandest, focuses on Prohibition-era classics and a book of Sable's own cool creations. The lounge is sophisticated comfort, harkening back to the 40s and 50s, with rich, deep patterns and textures playing out in different hues of oxblood, browns and blacks. True to a bar's history of alchemy, the drinks are crafted at onyx mixology stations, back-lit by panels alluding to the chemical make-up of the various elixirs.
You'll also find one of Chicago's most complete libraries of amber spirits, including a selection of distinct, approachable and interesting bottles. Master Sommelier Emily Wines' thoughtfully assembled wine list completes the libation line up.
New American Cuisine Meets Chicago Dining
Chef Heather Terhune has created an inspired menu of social plates, appetizers, entrées and brick-oven flatbread specialties, all of which are brought to delicious life in the vibrant exhibition kitchen. The social plates are designed for sharing amongst your group so that each can savor a broad range of tastes. Dishes large and small are prepared with organic, sustainably grown fruits, vegetables, meats and fish as often as possible. Much of the farm and ranch produce hails from nearby Midwest farmers and purveyors.
Named in honor of Jean Baptise Point du Sable, the Father of Chicago, Sable Kitchen & Bar represents a new era of eating and drinking that combines the best of America's chic past with its provocative present. Come, settle in.
