Public
Nolita
This sceney designer restaurant inside a former bakery brings a touch of the Meatpacking District to Nolita. Moodily lit and industrially chic, its two conjoined spaces showcase a sleek mix of concrete, exposed brick and wood paneling. The mastermind behind Public’s globally inspired cuisine is British-trained Brad Farmerie, whose travels have left a cosmopolitan mark on his culinary concoctions. Reflecting pan-Pacific, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian influences, the clipboard menu offers creative dishes like grilled kangaroo on a coriander falafel; snail and oxtail ravioli; and pan-seared Tasmanian sea trout, all poetically presented and paired with unique wines.

The review for this article is quite old, and since then Public has really changed, and as a result I'd definitely recommend popping in for a meal or drink...or both! There's now a very strong Modern-Australia feel to the restaurant (which makes sense, as it's in Little Australia...), which can clearly be seen when you glance at the wine list or food menu. We came for dinner, and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly, attentive service upon arrival. For dinner we had the kangaroo carpaccio, New Zealand venison loin, Long Island duck breast, and the fried Wiley Point oysters - all delicious. Definitely a great spot for a special occasion!
