The Publican


  • 90

Under the glow of sodium bulbs, communal tables fill up with patrons at Paul Kahan’s meat-centric, Michelin-recommended restaurant, the Publican. Resembling a German beer hall, extensive beer offerings hail from America and across the pond, best paired with their not-to-be-missed spicy pork rinds, creative seafood selection and hearty mains like country rib with spigarello, apple, pistachio dukkah and honey vinegar.
