The Publican

From the team behind Blackbird and avec comes this homage to beer, pork, and fish. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Cosmo Goss have developed a network of proveyors 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, 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.

"Don’t eat here because this restaurant is so amazing and I’m tired of fighting for a table. Seriously, in a city full of amazing brunch spots, this is the best of the best. The beer and brunch cocktail list is out of this world and the F2T food is super creative and delicious. Most importantly, the staff and management of Publican recognize their repeat customers and take great care of them. That level of recognition is what puts this place over the top. Again, don’t eat here."

"My husband had never been and we are both meat lovers. We ordered 1/2 charcuterie plate and asked for a good beverage pairing. As I don't like sour beers, our server brought samples of other recommendations. The result was excellent. We then ordered broccolini and the three ham plate, followed by the bbq carrots. Everything was so delicious, we didn't have room for dessert, even though it was his birthday. The server had figured out the birthday part and brought us some after dinner shots that were amazingly perfect choices - a bitters digestif (husband) and sweet lemony/lime creamsicle type for myself. Wonderful! Totally worth it."

"One of the best meals I've had in Chicago. Every item we chose was magnificent. We had the bread plate with three spreads, Chef's choice oysters, avocado salad, 3 choices of ham and the trout. Incredible."

"Has not been back for dinner for a while. This place is a good as ever. tired one of the crudos which was excellent, the porchetta is one of the best I have ever had and finished it off with a great dessert - rhubarb cobbler. Highly recommend it to anyone!"

"We did the Chef's Menu for $65 per person, and got a FANTASTIC variety of flavors from dishes that we probably wouldn't have ordered on our own. We also got a LOT of food; we left with our bellies very full and very happy! It was a great culinary experience for a fantastic value."

"We had a delightful experience at this focused not fussy restaurant. Drinks were delish and they serve our favorite J. Henry & Sons WI Farm produced Bourbon which paired beautifully with the tasty and expertly seasoned and prepared dishes we ordered. Chicken liver pate - get it. Pork rillette was also a complex taste sensation and must have bbq grilled carrots. Only challenge was we ordered too much but leftovers are good too. Our server was excellent and he aptly managed a difficult customer seated next to us, with aplomb. We will be back, next time early enough to purchase our favorites from across the street to take home."

"The service is not fast and you're elbow-to-elbow with strangers. If that's not your deal, then don't come here. But if you want the best food in town, then you should. And I love the atmosphere - it's just not necessarily for everyone."

"We had an exceptional meal at the Publican sitting on the bar rail We decided to share four plates and the two standouts were the country ham with goat butter -- such an unusual and delicious spread -- sided with the house-made bread. Really, really good. The beer flight was excellent. I'm not a beer drinker and I loved it. Also had cider. And we enjoyed the grilled and fresh cucumber with burrata cheese. We also had the fried clams on brioche with parmesan. It was a little odd to put a breaded element on bread -- a little too heavy, but tasty nonetheless. The sliced steak with peppers was good. I recommend going heavier on veggie dishes and the ham and bread. The noise level is off the charts. If you're looking for a quiet dinner, this is not the place for you. It is, however, rowdy and fun and tasty."
