The Publican is opening a location at O'Hare Airport

A new location of Paul Kahan's Publican restaurant is moving into Terminal 3 of O'Hare Airport, Crain's reports. It will take over the Wolfgang Puck Cafe near the American Airlines terminal, continuing O'Hare's transition into an unlikely (but much appreciated) culinary destination. The menu is said to "embody the spirit" of the original location, according to Crain's, so expect a tastefully curated selection of meats, cheeses, vegetables and breads.

Another prominent feature of the new O'Hare location will be a sizable beer menu, which means that your days of drinking overpriced Bud Light and margaritas at Chili's Too may soon come to an end. Suddenly, showing up hours before your flight and hanging out at the airport doesn't sound like such a bad idea.
