Church Publick is a beer-centric restaurant that serves drinks, small plates and modern cuisine in quaint, cozy digs, enhanced by exposed brick and reclaimed wood. Situated in Tribeca, the pub boasts an extensive selection of craft beers and microbrews, making it an appealing option for beer aficionados and pub crawlers. Chef Joshua Elliot champions a food menu that includes salads, pasta, sandwiches and entrees.
Visit Church Publick for lunch and treat yourself to the restaurant's signature salad, made with mixed greens, crimini mushrooms, goat cheese and housemade vinaigrette. If you're in the mood for heartier fare, try the pan-roasted organic chicken, which comes with roasted carrots and honey-rosemary French dressing. Church Publick's cozy setting makes it the ideal Tribeca hub for knocking back drinks with friends or colleges.
We loved our waitress, she was so attentive. The kale salad is also really, really, good. The salad is huge so I had leftovers, which I can't complain about.
Perfect if you are looking for a nice, fresh cooled meal in a vibrant local atmosphere. The food is no fuss, fresh and simple dishes that are guaranteed to please any fussy eater. We had the salmon and steak dish which were delicious.
Went with my friend for lunch. The food was just ok. I had chicken sandwich and she had beat salad and quesadilla. She said salad was barely edible. I thought it was OK. Probably wouldn't go back. There are many other places to go in the area.
Quiet for a weekday work lunch with colleagues. They have an elevated pub lunch menu that's terrific with options for many. Easy location from City Hall and away from tourists. Service was on point from the moment you walk in. Very attentive, made for a good lunch experience.
What a waste to spend brunch here.
- They had no ice coffee
- No jam/jelly when thy were serving toast
- The waitress was not helpful
The only nice part was the outside seating
Dont waste your time
We had a reservation at 11 am. They let us in and showed us to our table. 10 minutes later someone came by, took coffee orders, never came back. Service very inattentive even after we said we had time constraints. Food ok. The egg and spinach dish well liked. Potatoes bland. One person asked for dry toast so everyone got dry toast with no butter or jam on the table. Might be a better experience at a different time of day
Service was a little slow and it was not that busy when we were there. It was okay, but I was a little disappointed. I expected more from the reviews that I read before making the reservation.
This is a big improvement over the former Blimpie's Sandwich Shop in this space before.
Had lunch on a Thursday. Restaurant was about half full - not to loud for a normal conversation. Food was fine, selections were a bit minimal, but the same menu was out on the web. Service was relatively attentive and the food came out in a reasonable amount of time. I would go back for lunch.
This place is awesome. Food is good, drinks are strong, and everything is reasonably priced. The service is good, and the staff are so nice! The best part of all is that the environment is chill and relaxed. This is the kind of place to come to if you want to get out of the house, eat some good food, drink some drinks, socialize, and chill....all at a great price! I will definitely come back!
This would be a great place if the food was reasonably priced. $26 for a piece of fried catfish on a bed of rice is ridiculous. Had it been priced at $16 I would have been cool with the dish'S mediocrity. Serice ok but slow.
When I first arrived, the waiter/manager was very attentive. The food arrived and my Tribeca BLT was amazing with the twist of a gooey sunny side up egg on top. My colleague ordered a burger mid rare and it came out well done without a hint of pink anywhere. She sent it back and it took forever for them to refire and replace it and when it came back it was almost raw and the tone of the staff was annoyed. If they can fix their burger temps and be a little more gracious with customers, they'll be fine. The menu is fresh and fabulous.
Food was great, staff was a bit pushy at times. Had approximately 3-4 separate people continuously asking to take our orders (even though we had already ordered with our first person). However, the staff was very friendly.
We went there for brunch. Note that the menu in the restaurant is not the same as what is posted online or on Seamless. Also, the food really just wasn't good - the bacon was both burned and undercooked. The french toast used regular bread, not brioche or anything special and it was burned. I could only taste the bread on blt and the greens that they used were micro greens with a lot of stems that made eating the sandwich difficult.
Great ambiance and plenty of space for eating in the city, but all the food was just mediocre. Not bad by any means, but not outstanding.
Excellent beer list with 22 on tap and at least that many in bottles. Some great finds like Bell's Christmas ale and Blue Point Mosaic IPA. Appetizers were excellent, especially the loaded chips and jalapeño cheese pretzel.
This was our 3rd visit to Church Publick. We live in the area and it's very easy to wander in here and have a drink, nibbles or dinner. Great selection of beers/drinks and food is very good overall.
Service has been great, even when it's busy.
15 minutes before someone asked us for drinks. 4 people ordered meals but they only brought out 3. 1 of the 3 meals was wrong. They didn't give us a price reduction.
This was our 2nd visit to Church Publick. Service is great, and very friendly & helpful.
Food is decent, but nothing outstanding. We had soup (rather bland) and a burger, which
was very good. Good selection of beers and nice, cozy atmosphere if it's not too busy.
While not a 'hip,' active boozy brunch go-to, this spot had amazing food and good ambiance. We were the only people in the place from 12-1:30, which made it easy to chat with the friends I was with.
We ate at Church Publick on a Monday evening. It was quiet, but we didn't complain! Good service and food was decent,
but no one in our party of 4 ate anything outstanding. Good selection of beers and Monday Night FB on the TV's made for a welcoming
atmosphere. Great "pub" decor with tasteful accents. I'll go back....
Came here on a Saturday night and enjoyed the extensive beer list and pub fare but upscaled with a twist. The dick quesadillas were my fave with the tornado toys not far behind. The chimichurri steak frites was done perfectly!
Went here for a business lunch. Never again. Waiter was notably slow to get us drinks and take our order. Chicken was undercooked. Sent it back and they seemed to completely forget about it. Took 20 minutes to get back (and it was the exact piece I sent back, not a newly cooked entree, so how long could it have taken?). Even after that the dish had a very bitter and unpleasant flavor. Left a good part of it on the plate - something I never do. My dining companion left 1/2 of his salad entree uneaten as well. Can't recommend this place.
Food and service were fantastic. Cocktails were a bit disappointing last time (July 31st), although previously the same cocktails were much better. We also found the place to be noisier than I recall from previous experiences (been there twice, in March and May 2014)
Went to Church Publick with a few colleagues for lunch. The food was good for pub food and the server was friendly and attentive. The only complaint was that, sitting upstairs, it felt like it was 60 degrees in the restaurant. By the end of lunch, the three of us couldn't wait to leave the restaurant and get out in the hot summer air.
But, a good spot for a quick sit-down lunch downtown.
Pleasantly surprised.A little dark in the booths in the back but was perfectly private for a business lunch. Beet salad was awesome as were pulled park tacos. Great combo.
I had such a nice time for my birthday with a group of 12 at Church Publick on Friday night - great food, great drinks, great service, and we had a whole section of the upstairs to ourselves. I DEFINITELY recommend this place for group outings - the food is delicious and won't break the bank. Thanks!!
We went for brunch on a Saturday -- not realizing that they only serve brunch on Sundays, so that was disappointing. However, the food was great. We were the first people in the place and the music was really loud -- so think they are going for a younger crowd. Extensive beer list -- looked amazing. I had the hard cider -- 2 thumbs up.
Great atmosphere and a beer list any enthusiast would appreciate. Food is good to go with the great beer list.
Enjoy going here for dinner. Love the red snapper burrito and great beer selection.
We really loved the decor but the music was VERY LOUD so having a conversation was difficult. The service was very good and the menu was interesting. I would recommend this place for anyone who likes their music loud
Fantastic selection of beers and great food in a beautiful environment, what more does one need? Solid cocktail list as well.
I had such a great dinner experience at this lovely little restaurant. The manager greeted and seated us immediately, the wait staff was prompt, friendly and polite and suggested excellent items off the menu and wine list. The wild boar pappardelle is delicious, and the goat cheese gnocchi my friend had was really tasty! The manager on duty was incredibly knowledgeable about the available wines and made sure we had the perfect drink to compliment our dinners. The setting and decor is quaint and inviting, definitely a unique find in Tribeca!
Good selection of beer.
Everything else bland, uninspiring and borderline depressing.
We won't be back.
The space is really cool. But we waited 30+ minutes to order and had to ask the server to come to the table each time we needed something because he never checked in. The food was poorly excuted. The menu looked good, but it was cold on arrival and was cooked by an amateur. Not a great experience.
Great selection of craft beers and very nice dining atmosphere.
Although this place opened about 5 months ago & we live around the corner, we finally managed to pop in for brunch. We were floored: amazing menu, great selection of beers on tap, phenomenal service, and the best "old tribeca" decor we've ever seen executed. From the custom metal work around the bar (including iconic Tribeca pillars in the center of the room) right down to the ceiling lamps that are replicas of the lighting you would find in any old-timey NYC government building, etc. - they nailed it. The breakfast menu is classics re-imagined: the hush puppies breakfast salad was out of this world, the caramelized apple pancakes were phenomenal, and the homemade potato chips toped w/ beer cheese fondu will change your life.
My first visit was a Friday evening and we were seated near the bar area so it was a tiny bit loud, but fun. I will absolutely go back. The food was delicious! Creative menu yet not too fussy - just excellent food. Our waiter was fab! He was very busy but he somehow managed to be there when we needed him with a "happy to serve you" attitude. In additional to the appetizer section there is a really fun Snack menu. I was with two friends and we each ordered something different and every entre was fantastic.
I didn't spend any time at the bar but it looked like a fun area. Overall, there is really cool vibe, great food, and fantastic service!
would not recommend this place as a restaurant. It is more of a bar vibe with lots of food options. Food is not for foodies. I remember their pretzel bread being amazing. everything else was average.
This new TriBeCa restaurant has very good food but is overpriced at lunch. That probably explains the lack of customers. They should lower their prices if they want to survive....
