Public House Celebrates Mid-Winter Flavors With New Food and Drink Menus

Southern food may be traditional, but it’s never boring at Public House. The restaurant offers New South updates of classic dishes at casual prices, and regularly shakes things up with seasonal menu changes that reflect what is available at local farms. The most recent changes are a new mid-winter dinner menu, as well as new drink and small plate menus at The Social, Public House’s bar.

New items on the lunch and dinner menus include Grilled Beef Fillet and Poached Lobster with mashed potatoes and little green beans and Duck Confit with mashed potatoes, red cabbage, and grapes. New dinner appetizers are the House Smoked Salmon Dip served with celery and saltines, and Bronzed Gulf Shrimp with kale salad. Fans of the veggie plate will be excited to see cauliflower included in the selections.

The Social’s bar snacks menu now includes Chicken Fingers with fries, House Potato Chips with Bacon Blue Cheese dip, Pot Roast Nachos with USA cheese and fresh pico de gallo, Fried Pickle baskets, and Meatloaf Sliders with fried onion, USA cheese, and fresh jalapenos.

The cocktail menu has several new drinks, as well. In keeping with existing house specialty cocktails, several are named for songs by The Pixies, including the Into the White (pinapple, gin, cream, egg white, flower water), the Superhero Named Tony (vodka, rum, gin, tequila, blue curacao), and the Bossanova (rioja red wine & Mexican coke). Fans of the grapefruit-tinged Alec Eiffel will be excited this beloved drink has a new friend-- the Brick Is Red cocktail, featuring Averna vodka, ginger, and grapefruit. There are also several new drinks featuring house-made mixers-- grenadine, tonic, and ginger beer—carbonated with classic seltzer guns. These ingredients create an authentic vintage drink experience and flavors you can’t get anywhere else in town.

Public House continues to serve up perennial favorites like the Pimento Cheese & Fried Pickles, Fried Chicken, Pork Tenderloin, Red Wine Braised Pot Roast, Chicken Livers, Macaroni and Cheese, and more. The Social still offers its popular champagne cocktails, quality draft beers, high gravity brews, classic cocktails, and selection of fine absinthes. Public House’s weekday lunch specials and The Social’s Monday-Saturday drink specials are still the same, and can be found on the website and social media accounts.

Public House opened in 2009 and became popular for the quality and service of fine dining with an accessible price point. Its relaxed yet stylish ambiance, thoughtful menu of comfort foods, vintage-style drinks, fun specials, and weekly dance parties have made it a popular destination for diners, drinkers, and socializers young and old.
