From the team behind Blackbird and avec comes this homage to beer, pork and fish. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Brian Huston have developed a network of purveyors 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. This unique and exciting beer program is headed by "beer guy" Michael McAvena. Michael is an aficionado of old style and new beers alike. Like Blackbird and avec, The Publican is a design partnership from the James Beard Award-winning team of Thomas Schlesser and partner Donnie Madia. The Publican is a sister restaurant of avec and Blackbird.
