It's been a while since I have been here but we came after my concert. They kindly seated us even though our entire party was not there. Cocktails were delicious and boozy. Our favorite dishes were the scallops and the chestnut soup. Great romantic scenery...More

The expectation of a Michelin rated restaurant set us up for a let down. Additionally, the menu leaned heavily vegan and pescatarian. Perhaps this was what was on the menu for a Friday evening. More disappointing than the food items were the drinks. $15+ per...More

I visited Public a few years ago and liked it very much. That's why I was so disappointed this time. The biggest issue was the loud (and bad tropical house) music. We had to shout to each other. Just like all the other guests had...More

After a perfect dinner the Public staff told us the that the restaurant will be closed starting June 2017. The landlord will build an appartment building at this location. I hope the Michelin star will be moved to a new location.

I've been waiting years for the Impossible (plant-based) Burger to show up in restaurants. It's recently debuted at Public and it did not disappoint--absolutely spot on, delicious hamburger, minus the suffering and damage to the environment and health!

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
