The Publican has some very exciting events occuring during the month of December!
On Saturday, December 17th, we will be holding our seasonal food drive from 1:30-3:30pm, benefitting the Greater Chicago Food Depository. As usual, we will be providing delicious Publican snacks as well as giving a complimentary brew to all who donate.
We will also be auctioning off some great prizes! So please join us in the holiday giving spirit and stop by with non-perishable donations.
Next up on the docket is our next Publican beer dinner! Sunday, December 18th, we will be hosting a traditional “7 Fishes” Dinner.
The “Feast of the 7 Fishes” will be a 5-course prix fixe menu for $55/guest featuring 7 different fishes and, of course, an optional beer pairing, both of which will be exclusive of tax and gratuity.
Please contact us quickly to reserve your seats! We will be seating throughout the evening, from 5pm-9pm, every half an hour, and will also be offering an abbreviated a la carte menu.
The following Thursday, the 22nd, we will be celebrating the darkest day of the year with a very special tapping of Surly Darkness. Beer lovers will not want to miss out on this! Come on by to rock out to some heavy music and drink some heavy brew!
Finally, it’s hard to believe that the holidays are upon us already! The Publican will be closed on December 24th & December
25th, and will be back open for regular service on the 26th…
…And then, it’s time to celebrate that conclusion of 2011 and the beginning of 2012! We will be hosting a very special 4-course family-style prix fixe menu from 5:30pm-10:30pm, with seatings every half an hour. The menu (subject to change due to seasonality) will be $55/guest, not inclusive of tax, gratuity or beverages, and will include:
1st course: Mortadella Salad with Mudd Creek Citrus, Avocado & Fennel
2nd course: Nantucket Bay Scallop Pasta with American Sturgeon Caviar
3rd Course: Beef Cheeks with Oysters & Broccoli
4th Course: Dessert To Be Determined
We will also be offering a $30/guest Seafood Tower supplement, featuring our freshest cold preparations of oysters, mussels, ceviche, and the like. Please call us soon to arrange your reservation!
New Year’s Day marks our First Annual New Years Day Brunch at The Publican. We will be open from 10am-4pm and will be serving not only some of your favorite brunch items, but also will have available a seafood tower supplement. Again, please call to make accommodations!
We wish all of you a safe, happy & delicious holiday season and look forward to cooking for you soon!
