Now under the talented Cosmo Goss, Paul Kahan's Publican is still as relevant as it was when it opened in 2008. It boasts a fantastic beer list, packed with Belgian and local brews; a menu that equally celebrates meat, seafood and veggies; and the best brunch in town, served Saturdays and Sundays. The chicken is legendary, the oysters pristine, and the desserts, from Anna Posey, are inventive—we'd happily eat every meal here, if we could.

There's a reason that Publican is always slammed with people at any hour of the day. This Fulton Market restaurant specializes in food that pleases just about everyone (vegetarians excluded). Make sure that you try the hams (the sampler is the way to go) and whatever seasonal vegetable is being offered. You can wash it all down with a selection from the solid beer menu.
