If you are looking for the perfect brunch place in NYC (especially the Soho area), then this is the place to be! The food is not your typical brunch, but it’s not odd at all! The place is also really modern, but industrial. It doesn’t have a window, but it has an indoor feeling.
As my friend and I got seated right by the side of the restaurant, which perfectly overviews the Soho pedestrian area, we were greeted with tiny cookies.
The night before I came to this restaurant, I decided to open its website and take a look of its menu to plan what I wanted to order. I was really happy to find out that many of Public’s food is classic, but with a little twist, like the coconut pancake with ricotta cheese and the tea-smoked salmon with poached eggs and yuzu hollandaise sauce.
We shared a really fresh salad, made of lentils, green beans, avocado, pecans and pomegranate (This was my favorite!) and also lamingtons stuffed with strawberries and cream. So delicious!
Another one that we shared was the turkish eggs. I didn’t really like it because I think it tasted really bland, but I’m just posting this for your viewing pleasure.
Price-wise, I think this restaurant is pretty fair. The lamingtons cost $3.50 and the salad $10. I say that you would probably spend around $20 if you pair one meal and a side with a good drink. Definitely try it out!
