Located in the same building as the Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar, Sable has been owning the craft cocktail game downtown for years. The staff, led by Mike Ryan (who may be sporting some variation of a mullet, mohawk, mutton chops or all three) takes a literary approach to drinks, with a book-sized menu stuffed with thought-provoking quotes and lengthy descriptions. The cocktails have always been progressive, but the wine list is equally worthy of consideration.
