The Warbler Restaurant Review

: What's the philosophy behind this restaurant by the Gather team? Quality ingredients and elevated execution. Chef Ken Carter has opened a chic spot in the same stretch as Gather. The menu features lighter dishes such as Ancient Grains salad with freekah, pomelo, sherry gastrique and rosemary crumble and Korean style chicken wings with tamarind glaze, and heavier items like curry with roasted mushrooms and ricotta and sausage with garlic soubise. The space takes design notes from the German-English agricultural community present in 19th century Lincoln Square. Look for lime-washed walls, hanging plants, a greenhouse patio, banquettes and plenty of light.
