Mexican
June 2, 2017, marks the opening of Casa Pública, a Mexican restaurant and bar in the North Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. At the helm of the project are partners chef Bob Truitt, beverage director Gustavo Ortega-Oyarzun, and managing partner Daniel Ortiz de Montellano. Located at 594 Union Avenue, just a block from McCarren Park, Casa Pública blends traditional Mexican home cooking with dishes found in the country’s mercados and offers a playful cocktail and michelada program. The restaurant/bar is a true passion project for the partners who have personal ties to Mexico’s rich culture and the Williamsburg area.

    Food was decent, server was attentive, drinks were delicious. Only complaint is that the hostess gave my reservation to another group without checking me in. We had to wait for another 30 minutes. I'd sit at the bar next time.

    Best Mexican food in North Brooklyn! Everything's great, especially the queso fundido, esquites, albondigas, and chicken mole taquiza (big portion!). The ponche is delicious, and they spike it with a really incredible mezcal. My girlfriend is from Mexico City and is understandable picky about Mexican restaurants— this is one of her favorites in NY. We come every few weeks.

    I spent Valentine's Day at Casa Publica with my husband and we really enjoyed their special menu created for the occasion. The ambience was romantic with roses on each of the tables and our dinner started with complimentary champagne! A really nice touch. The music and lighting was great too. We liked the space because it didn't feel cramped the way many restaurants in BK and Manhattan do. The food was amazing. We especially loved the Queso Fundido. Highly recommend!

    Their service was some of the worst I’ve ever received at any restaurant. The waiter didn’t care to come and check on my table at all. I would pass on this place.

    I shouldn't share this, as I would like to return [often] without fear of being tackled for a table. We all know that Saturday morning feeling, the feeling of waking on a crisp sunny morning combined with the sharp pain resulting from blind ambition the prior evening? We've all had it, so hold your judgement; I share with you the cure; my hero of the day--this restaurant. Their food & hospitality was a welcoming warm hug on a day where I was weak and addled. The guacamole made me feel again, spiced with plenty of sliced serranos. The carnitas, with the huevos rancheros, was like crisp, yet tender pillows of buttery pork. Summed up, the food was simple and perfectly executed.

    Casa Publica's staff, chef, bartender, were all top notch. I went with a group of close friends and I can say Casa Publica aided in the conversation and vibe. I will return every time I'm in NY.

    The service was inattentive and slow without apology. We had to seek out servers to ask for what we needed rather than them coming and ever asking. We got our drinks after we had finished appetizers. We got our last side after we had finished dinner. We had to ask for water several times. Food was ok but nothing special for price. Drinks were good. We were charged full price for all and the poor service was not acknowledged in any way. Ambience was nice but that didn’t make up for the poor service and mediocre food.

    We got there at 11pm on a Saturday night, just as they were switching to their late-night menu. So many great options and at happy hour prices. Everything was beyond delicious. We had the guacamole (a tad spicy), queso fundido, shrimp tacos, corn, and brussel sprouts. I would order all of them again, but the brussels & tacos were my favorite. The normal menu looked great too - lots of options. And the environment was really fun! Vibrant music and people (both staff and clients). All around a great place!
