PUBLIC is the uber cool new restaurant on the CBD dining scene. Perched in a glass box, it is part kitchen, part bar, park New York loft. With a menu designed for sharing, we recommend the Kentucky Fried Duck, or Saltbush Organic Lamb Shoulder. Whether you're after a quick bite, a drink, or a bit of both, PUBLIC will welcome you with open arms.

Wow, as soon as you walk in to this great space, you know you're in for a treat. I went to Public to specifically try the Kentucky Fried Duck that I heard such great things about. And it didn't disappoint! I would go back just to drink at the bar even. Great space.

I am actually a little bit in love with Public. I've been there a few times and have taken friends and family too and I've never had a bad experience there.
The food is always amazing and there are some absolute must-have dishes like the Texas Brisket, the Kentucky Fried Duck and the Mac n Cheese. Everything is served in a really stylish way and the ambiance is great. You can easily lose hours in there enjoying the food and drinks.
The service is top notch and Bonnie is always a complete pleasure. She makes every diner feel special and really knows everything about the menu.
If you're in Brisbane, do yourself a favour and head to Public. You won't regret it.

Brisket obviously. Amazing.
KFD. A winner.
Cocktails. Especially Old Fashioned.
Bonnie and Tom are the greatest hosts and this joint is a favourite of mine.
