As a gastro-lounge, Sable Kitchen & Bar will do for hand-crafted cocktails, spirits and wine what the gastro-pub has done for beer: pairing seasonally-inspired cuisine with an artfully designed cocktail, spirits and wine program. Sable’s menu fuses traditional cooking techniques with a modern flair that seeks to highlight the harmony between cocktails, spirits, wine and cuisine. The bar menu will focus on snacks, medium sized plates and brick oven flatbreads while the dinner menu combines small, medium and large plates to encourage sampling and sharing. With a commitment to working with independent Midwest farmers and purveyors, the menu will draw inspiration from local and organic ingredients—everything from seasonal produce to free-range meats and sustainable seafood. A sleek and sexy space, Sable is a refreshing update on the glamour of the 1940’s, as old Hollywood charm mingles effortlessly with modern industrial touches and classic Chicago warmth.

"Menu is cut in half ,no more small portion options. They use to have some great burgers and they too are off the menu. I use to come here on a regular basis think those days are over. If the menu expands I'll be back!"

A Cantonese term for “drink tea,” Yum Cha also has a cultural meaning to “go eat dim sum,” and that’s exactly what guests will do. By restauranteurs, Paul Lee and Aeron Lancero, diners can expect to see an array of homemade dim sum dishes representative of the past, present and future of Chinese fare, in addition we offer New Asian plates and Sushi. Executive Chef Rodelio Aglibot envisions a menu that highlights traditional Chinese dishes such as Peking Duck, Hong Kong Style Sweet and Sour Pork and Ma Po Tofu, alongside modern dishes that showcase a playful take on the cuisine.<br /><br />The restaurant is situated in Lakeshore East's Village Market complex, between Randolph Street and Benton Place, offering stunning views of the neighborhood and Chicago’s architectural gems. The 150-seat restaurant features a full service bar and seasonal patio dining.

"Dim sum was amazing as well as the entrees . Food was fresh,perfectly cooked and wonder layers of spice.
Great dining room tables not too close together like some new hot spots.
We could have dined on all dim sum but wanted to give the entrees a try as well. We will all be back again soon and have already had friends who have gone to Yum Cha from our recommendation.
