The Warbler - Chicago
Gather is one of the biggest dining success stories in Lincoln Square, so it didn't come as a surprise when its owners decided to open a sequel next door. The Warbler is situated in a much larger space that includes an open kitchen, round bar and spacious patio for 120 guests.
Executive chef/partner Ken Carter, who is also behind the menu at Gather, offers a wide range of options here and everything highlights high-quality ingredients. Many dishes are also shareable, including Korean-style chicken wings, baked mussels, and a rotating selection of seasonal flatbreads like curry with
roasted mushrooms and ricotta and Italian sausage with garlic soubise.
Larger plates range from a selection of house-made pastas to a juicy cheeseburger on a house-made bun. Guests are encouraged to wrap up their experience at The Warbler with dessert, ranging from the peanut butter and chocolate brownie with Valrhona chocolate sauce to warm carrot cake with house-made praline pecan ice cream.
