Sable Kitchen & Bar

The bar is the main draw at Sable, where bartender John Stanton is turning out excellent cocktails, including lively Spanish Gin & Tonics. The food menu is a nice match, with plates available in both small and large sizes, which means you can graze across light battered cheese curds, truffle deviled eggs and other American fare.

I've now been to this place three times. The first time I visited was because Sable was featured in a Netflix documentary called Cocktail (I believe). This was when I was first getting into craft cocktails, so I went there to check it out. I wasn't very impressed, however, I decided to give this place another chance once I was more into cocktails. Again, I was underwhelmed. My girlfriend absolutely loves this place and every time she mentions it, I say it's not that great. She insisted on taking me back because "I probably didn't order the right drink". So, I go back to Sable for a third time for a redemption drink. As you could guess, I didn't think it was that great. Looking at the food menu, I found that the meats looked like they'd be pretty good. My girlfriend said their bone marrow is unbelievable, but it was taken off the menu this last time I went. I'm a pescatarian and their fish dishes didn't look like anything special. Furthermore, under their vegetables, a spring roll is $8. I think that's absolutely ridiculous. 

Overall, I think this place is very overrated, but the atmosphere is nice and the place itself is very big.
