The menu features Italian and American favorites including sharing starters, pizzas, pasta dishes and risotto, and more tantalizing tastes that are also reasonably affordable! For drinks, there are some tempting mocktails and specialty coffee powered by Indpt’s Grind Coffee.

With the array of delicious dishes on Public’s menu, some top tastes are the potato cauliflower – a baked, layered potato with cauliflower and seasoned cream sauce topped with cheese, the Summertime Salad – mixed cheese, corn, heirloom tomato and lettuce served with house sauce, the corn ribs – just because the concept of corn as ribs was super cool, and lastly, Public’s Original pizza. You just can’t come to Public and not eat pizza. Topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil leaves – you will have no regrets!

Head down there any day from 12 pm to 10 pm and feast away!
