About this place
From the team behind Blackbird and avec comes this homage to beer, pork, and fish. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Sieger Bayer have developed a network of purveyors to supply the restaurant with hand-selected, sustainably-harvested fish and seafood as well as sustainably-raised heirloom pork to anchor a rustic menu of simple, eclectic fare. The extensive international beer list, developed by partners Eduard Seitan and Terry Alexander and now Beer Director Adam Vavrick, features 100 or so ales, lagers, stouts and ciders by the bottle, 12 of those available on tap. Like Blackbird and avec, The Publican is a design partnership from the James Beard Award-winning team of Thomas Schlesser and partner Donnie Madia.
Tips from locals
A creative seafood & pork-focused menu featuring global brews in a hip setting with communal tables.
Make a reservation and venture to the Fulton Market neighborhood if you like beer, pork, and oysters, as that's what they serve at the Publican.
Great food and drink menu. Plates are good for groups. Call ahead to reserve a side booth for privacy away from the communal tables.
