Love this spot- it covers the whole spectrum in a dining experience. You could go there for a casual brunch, a date, a special occasion- and fit it to any event. We went for a blowout knowing that they'll be closed down for the next 2 years and enjoyed the tasting menu. Instead of just falling off- knowing that there was only a week to go- they had fun experimental dishes like the seafood trio with lobster, himachi and fried oyster. The giant prawn was amazing- an entree in its own right- almost perfectly cooked. Their cocktails are unexpected- my Dirty Martini was a hot pink surprise with a pickled quail egg that infused every sip... Service was great, with some odd timing, but I'm used to Brooklyn service so compared to that: out of the park! Whenever a great city restaurant closes, I can only look at the gap it left and wish I had gone more- nothing new there, but certainly glad I got in before the doors closed at Public!
