supper club

Join us from 4:30-6:00pm Monday-Friday for a family-style supper club!

For $25/person, your table can choose a selection of five dishes from our regular dinner offering including one salad, any two appetizers, vegetable dishes or house made pastas and your favorite flatbread. Finish with any one of our decadent desserts - choose your favorite!

The culinary team will portion the dishes based on the number of guests in your party to ensure that all get enough to eat.

With a menu friendly enough for children, but elevated so that the adults will truly enjoy it too, our weekday Supper Club is perfect for all. Kids nine and under are complimentary!

beverage program

The beverage program at The Warbler was created in an effort to serve delicious cocktails, fresh beer and carefully selected wines, but also at a great price.

All of our handcrafted custom cocktails, named after beautiful birds, feature fresh ingredients and the full spectrum of spirits - from the aromatics of gin to the sweetness of tequila to the place of cognac.

Wine drinkers will enjoy our carefully curated wine list, which will be sure to satisfy any palate.

For beer lovers, we offer a selection of rotating draft beer as well as assorted craft beers in bottles and cans with a focus on the many local breweries we are proud to call neighbors.

Non-drinkers and kiddos can join in on the fun too with our inventive mocktails or our fine selection of loose leaf tea from Ravenswood's very own Rare Tea Cellar.

Chef/Partner Ken Carter grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and attended Scottsdale Culinary Institute. After completing the program at Le Cordon Bleu, Ken worked at the esteemed The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, then earned the amazing opportunity to work alongside famed Chef Charlie Trotter at the namesake restaurants in both Las Vegas and Chicago.

In December 2012, Ken joined owner David Breo to open Gather as a Partner and Executive Chef. Five years later, David and Ken have embarked on their second concept, The Warbler.

Ken thoughtfully created the full-offering menu, appealing to a all guests looking for a great culinary experience worthy of any occasion. He strives to ensure that all guests have an amazing dining experience and is inspired to create innovative dishes that entice guests to enjoy new and unexpected flavors.

Backed by Ken’s culinary expertise, Gather was nominated for Best New Restaurant by the Jean Banchet Awards in their opening year and Ken received recognition in Zagat’s 30 under 30 (when he was) a young man.

Ken continually strives for success by pushing new flavor combinations with classic techniques, as well as lifting the conventional thought behind what a neighborhood restaurant should be.
