    stunning food

    Is the kitchen here even capable of a miss? Everything we ordered was like fireworks of flavor. The menu is kind of erratically priced - you can get out for $15/person or $50/person, without too much difference in quantity, depending on how you order - but the service is beyond awesome and the whole vibe is great. One recommendation (hope Paul Kahan is reading this): PLEASE describe the beers on the beer list. With that many varieties it'd be nice to know what's light, dark, hoppy, fruity, etc ., without having to ask the server to explain every single one.

    Okay place

    We had reservations for 5 on a Monday night. The place was incredibly noisy even though it wasn't full and the waiter said it was a slow night. We asked for help ordering. Her idea of help was to tell us that everything was fabulous. We asked if we were ordering too much or too little and she said we were fine despite, at the end of the evening, having to cancel two orders because we had ordered way too much. We spent much of the evening handing our plates to the busboy--efficient as he was--as we changed courses; we felt like we worked there. When we asked for some spoons from the waitress so we could eat the just served shellfish stew, we were told that we should be patient, she would bring them as soon as she had time. This was an okay experience but we agreed that as a dining experience, we didn't need to repeat it.

    A flawless meal @ The Publican

    We were a party of 4 on june 5th @ 5:30 - from the pork rinds to the pickled plate of treats to the frites with eggs, sweatbreads(lamb& shallots), Sand dabs(fish),Country Ribs & many different beers from the extensive list. Every dish was a wonderful taste experience! the desserts were also very tastey. We had the waffle with honey and rubarb sauce & buttermilk choc cake with a ginger & lime sorbet. Small plates but all delish!! would go again in a minute!! Beer list and pork rinds would be worth the trip on there own! highly recomend this place!!

    Insanely Spectacular Brunch

    Came for Sunday brunch with some friends and we honestly were blown the f*** out of the water. Every dish was stellar - red-wine poached eggs were a brilliant spin on boring old eggs benedict, the scrapple was kickass, the ham quiche and smoked fish is a totally inspired pairing. And oh my god, the bacon! I know bacon is over, but sweet god this is the best bacon I've ever had in my life. And considering that the brunch prices are all supercheap (rare to have something over $10), it's maybe my favorite brunch in the world. That's right - the entire world.

    Incredibly tasty Food!

    This place has fantastic food. We started the night with some great beer and wine and half a dozen mixed oyster sampler, and they were super fresh. We split the fish stew, which really the best bouillibaisse I have tasted outside of Marseilles, France, (pure fish stock with no cream). My husband could not stop sopping it up with his bread. The star of the evening was the veal brains. I didn't look at them too closely so as not to scare myself out of eating them, but they were superb little morsels that tasted like filet mignon. Our waiter was super nice and the place was packed when we went at 10pm on a Friday night, however the communal table does not make you feel like you are eating with strangers. They have cool booths if you go with a foursome. Overall this place rocks!

    If you really love food...

    and have a few friends that love food too - PLEASE go here. got in with no reservation after maybe a 20 minute wait with 4 people. while we waited the servers selected one of the best Belgium beers that ive ever had got a great table and the fries with fried egg right away - the oyster selection was good, not great - but if your goal is oysters, youre in the wrong place get the pork - the pork anything. the pork belly was outstanding and so was everything that i stole off of my friends plates every employee was extremely kind and knowledgeable - excellent service. we spent hours at dinner and it felt like no time at all. we were never hurried or rushed. you truly feel like a guest. go with good friends and a huge appetite - one of the best new spots in the city

    Great Food!

    I've been a few times already and I love this place! Great Pre-Bulls or Pre-Blackhawks place for food and drinks. The menu is creative and the food is outstanding! The service could be a tad faster (especially deliverying the tasty brews) but all in all this has to be my favorite new restaurant in the city. Hands down.
