Part of One Off Hospitality Group

From the team that created Blackbird and avec restaurants, The Publican is a beer-focused restaurant located at 837 W. Fulton Market in Chicago. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Dennis Bernard craft an eclectic menu inspired by simple farmhouse fare in a space evocative of a European beer hall. Designed by James Beard Award-Winner Thomas Schlesser, The Publican features the same simple lines and strong design elements that made the architect’s long-time partnership with Design Project Manager/Partner Donnie Madia so successful. A partnership between Executive Chef Paul Kahan, Donnie Madia, Terry Alexander and Eduard Seitan, The Publican anchors the burgeoning Fulton Market District.
