Next week, Chef Stephen Rogers and Allison Yoder will debut Sachet, the Mediterranean-inspired, slightly more casual sibling to Henderson Avenue’s Gemma.

The much-anticipated restaurant is just about ready to kick open the doors at 4720 Oak Lawn Avenue in the Shops of Highland Park, near TJ’s Seafood and Carbone’s, according to a press release. As far as the food is concerned, Sachet will serve up a menu of Mediterranean-influenced cuisine that takes inspiration from Spain, France, Lebanon, Tunisia, Morocco, Israel, and Turkey, among other far-flung locales.

Vegetarians can get especially excited about the arrival of Sachet, as Rogers plans to serve more than 20 different types of vegetable-based mezze alongside proteins like lamb, seafood, and poultry. Like at Gemma, the pasta at Sachet will be made in-house. “We’re going for something a little exotic but still approachable, and we’re inspired by the idea of using more vegetables,” Rogers said in a statement. “We’ll also use a lot more olive oil, this won’t be butter and cream cooking; it will be more like what I do at home.”

Sachet is set to open for dinner service on Wednesday, September 20. Plans to add all-day dining options and lunch service are in the works.
