Husband and wife team Stephen Rogers and Allison Yoder will debut their second restaurant, Sachet, on Wednesday, September 20 at the Shops of Highland Park. You may have heard of the couple’s other restaurant, Gemma. Best blood orange margarita in town. But let’s keep on track.
More about Sachet, according to the release:
“French for ‘a small bag of herbs and spices,’ Sachet will be a fun, warm and inviting restaurant with a fresh, light menu that’s inspired by the flavors of the Mediterranean coast, drawing from a broad array of countries such as Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, Tunisia, and Morocco.
Menu items will include lamb, seafood, poultry, house-made pastas, legumes and grains, salads, and more than 20 vegetable-based meze, or starters, sourced from the best seasonal ingredients possible.
Sachet is about having fun, about enjoying the energy in the room and sharing food and wine. There’ll be 110 seats inside, including the bar. Classic yet modern with a tremendous amount of light flowing through the space, the design boasts dramatic high ceilings and a muted pink and earthy color palette. A residential feel with an open kitchen and side terrace create an ambience that’s inviting and comfortable.
The centerpiece of the restaurant is a beautiful all-glass encased temperature-controlled wine cellar as well as a dramatic oval-shaped bar with 24 seats where the full dinner menu will be offered to walk-in guests.
Giving the same doting attention to its wine program as its big sister Gemma, Sachet will feature an all-Mediterranean wine list with a unique and significant selection of Greek, Italian, Turkish, Israeli, Lebanese and Spanish wines. The bar will offer more than 30 wines by the glass, with 18 wines on tap including 2 sherry wines.”
Sachet opens for dinner service on September 20. The restaurant will eventually offer lunch as well. They’re open Tuesday through Sunday and, on top of their regular menu (which can be viewed below), are serving a “Pre-Theatre” menu for $35 per person (4 courses) that’s available 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Sachet is located at 4270 Oak Lawn Ave.
