New Restaurant by the creators of Local 11 Ten

No question about it, Local 11 Ten is among the finest restaurants in a city of fine eateries!  So it seemed reasonable to assume that their new place, Public Kitchen & Bar, at the corner of Liberty & Bull St.,  would be exceptionally good as well.  More casual, more affordable, but surely great! Well, so far, at least, it seems to disappoint. Right off, they don’t have a menu posted anywhere, not on-line where they have a Facebook page, nor anywhere else. We have a copy of their daytime menu….called to try and find out what was on the evening menu and were told “some steaks, a pasta dish and a fresh fish dish.”  They do have a nice array of salads and sandwiche…. tried the Spinach salad, made as it should be with bacon dressing–really good! And sampled the crab cake–okay, but nothing to write home about. An interesting lineup of burgers….unfortunately, they say they cook them all medium-well. Which, to me at least, simply screams “overcooked and dry.” Did not try.  Well, it’s been less than a month since they opened, they’re in a perfect location, they should do well no matter what. Hopefully, a lot of kinks will be straightened out…. I’ll be back to see!
