Not for the General Public

At Public the menus are office order forms presented on clipboards while different dining areas of the restaurant are entitled, “the loading dock” or the “back lounge”. This dining experience is not for the general public, only highly qualified diners need apply, as Kangaroo and pink sea trout from Tasmania are on the menu.
Located at 210 Elizabeth Street, Public is a Nolita hot spot. The themed atmosphere looks like a 1950’s public institution, as the brick walls are adorned with oil lamps. Public even features a separate underground wine lounge adjacent to the restaurant called The Monday Room.
Deserving of our haute restaurant of the week Public is one of the best in the city.
