At Sachet, Stephen Rogers and Allison Yoder, the husband-and-wife team behind Gemma have done something rather extraordinary with their elegant Mediterranean small plates that draw a sleek crowd to the polished-but-casual Oak Lawn spot. Choose samplings from their vegetable-based Mediterranean meze—spicy carrot tabbouleh or compressed melon and Turkish cheese; pastas that include spelt fusilli with goat ricotta salata, watercress pesto, and vibrant sundried tomato or squid ink spaghetti twined with lobster, white wine, and star anise; or exquisite dishes like Secreto Iberico—Iberian pig with crispy papas bravas—or a lamb stew flavorful as ambrosia. The wine list is well-curated and dishes are focused and elegant, with an old-world integrity of ingredients. End with orange zest-infused Turkish doughnuts dusted with cardamom sugar.
Tip: Dine at the bar; pre- and post-theater four-course prix fixe menu on weekends.
