PUBLIC eat + drink - North Adams, Massachusetts

PUBLIC eat + drink is a stylish but unassuming American-style bistro that is a popular nightspot in the high season, and a warm haven for the locals on chilly winter evenings. The aesthetic is sleek and almost accidentally chic, with an affordable but very carefully selected array of wines, beer and creative cocktails. The menu includes sections dedicated to sandwiches, burgers, pasta and small plates — like the fish taco, or a chicken sandwich topped with cheddar cheese and apple slices. The generous house salad gussies up greens with cranberries, chevre and toasted almonds. If you ask for bread, you’ll receive a crusty, warm baguette. No single item on the menu breaks the $20 mark. (Also check out PUBLIC’s new sister eatery in Pittsfield, District Kitchen & Bar).

34 Holden St., North Adams, MA
(413) 664-4444
Open for dinner 7 days a week starting at 4 p.m.
