Local Favorite; The Publican

Name: The Publican
Location: Chicago, IL

One of my favorite spots in Chicago for oysters and meat is hands down, The Publican.
Located in Chicago's booming restaurant scene over in the West Loop, the space is communal and raw which goes perfectly with the food it serves.

The long communal table wraps around the interior of the restaurant creating an energy and allowing a variety of groups to be seated at the same time. 
Along the wall, are more private dining options, all of which hold four people in a corral-like setting. Once again, fitting for the carnivore lovers menu.

The custom shaker inspired seats pair well with the yellow tones and raw woods in the space.

The repetition of globe pendants is simple but creates a dramatic visual element in the otherwise monotoned space.
