Back in the fall, I had the pleasure of dining at The Publican to celebrate my sister's 25th birthday. I brought my camera and snapped some shots of what we had, though of course these photos are backlogged. But I'm a firm believer of the motto better late than never - so it's about time I share photographs of these delicacies with you.
Nestled into the industrial setting of Chicago's meatpacking district, this place is where you go for delicious meats and charcuterie - so it's go big or go home. If you're in Chicago and looking for a serious meal where you know exactly where your meat and produce are coming from, come to the Publican. The servings are family style, big, hearty, and completely for sharing. The dining room is open, and the long group tables promote fluidity in conversation. The woodwork is beautiful rustic craft, and if I have the opportunity to dine here again, I'm for sure requesting one of the private booths. As far as the food goes, I'd say my favorites hands down were the oysters, the prosciutto platter, and the pork belly.
