To start with, the space here is complex and sophisticated, with soaring ceilings and whitewashed brick walls, skylights, fireplaces, three dining areas, and a vast bar. You've come for the food, though, and you won't be disappointed. The menu flaunts its nonconformity, and dishes like Australian barramundi fish, served with vanilla-celeriac purée and braised garlic greens, demonstrate a light yet adventurous touch. Brunch at Public is a local favorite, with exotic dishes like coconut pancakes topped with fresh ricotta, mango, and lime syrup, and a juicy venison burger. Standout desserts include a chocolate mousse with tahini ice cream and sesame candy.
