Chef Stephen Rogers and Allison Yoder set September 20 as opening date of Sachet, sister restaurant to big-hit Gemma


 Chef Stephen Rogers and Allison Yoder swore they would not open a second restaurant. Nope, Yoder told me more than once. We have our hands full with Gemma, echoed Rogers.

On September 20, the husband-and-wife team plan to debut Sachet, their second restaurant, in the far north end of the Shops at Highland Park space.

Sachet’s menu will lean heavily on the Mediterranean– lamb, seafood, poultry, house-made pastas, legumes and grains, salads, and more than 20 vegetable-based dishes.

The veg-heavy menu will employ more olive oil than butter and cream –“more like what I do at home,” says Rogers. Many of the dishes, breads and stocks will be cooked in Sachet’s wood-fired oven, a focal point of the 110-seat restaurant with a warm, residential feel.

Rogers will oversee the kitchen of both Gemma and Sachet (he’s named Gemma chef Michael Lawson as the exec chef of Sachet), while Yoder will continue to run the operations side and wine program of both restaurants.

I love that there’ll also be a four-course $35 menu served from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. and  10 p.m.-11 p.m. each night; like Gemma, Sachet won’t be trying to empty your wallet.

I haven’t been in yet, but I’m sure expecting big things.
