Friendly, accommodating staff. Good selection of small plates, outstanding burgers, great beer selection. Above avg noise level though tolerable. Lots of parking although also readily accessible on foot from downtown and MoMA

Whether you are visiting the Berkshires or live here,PUBLIC eat+drink is the best restaurant around.Starting with the amazing cocktails and ending with a delightful dessert,you won't be disappointed. The atmosphere is chic and lively,yet relaxing at the same time.My salad was crisp,fresh, and delicately dressed.Two of our friends ordered the flatbread. Definately enough for the table to share.I had the Brie Burger which was cooked perfectly to my taste, with the Brie lightly melted.My husband had their famous Macaroni and cheese with pancetta. The texture was creamy,noodles perfectly cooked with an underlying flavor of Pancetta.To die for. We did save some room to share a wonderful,warm,rich chocolate dessert. The service was excellent,the prices were fare, and the atmosphere was great. A totally fun evening. I would highly recommend PUBLIC eat+drink for a wonderful night out.

We almost stopped at a pizza place, but we're glad we didn't! Found Public on Trip Advisor while driving around and and tried it. Eric had the Mac & Cheese with Pancetta and loved it. I had the the Mussels with a spicy sausage and kale which was great. And Mom had the burger cooked exactly the way she likes it ... rare! Definitely will be a go to spot when visiting our son in college!

While dropping our daughter off for college we meandered beyond our usual haunts and visited the next town, North Adams, MA. Public was a short walk from our hotel and we arrived for a late night dinner. Sat at the bar and enjoyed a delicious flatbread, salads and pasts/pork dinner. The bartender, Brad, was very friendly and provided excellent service. The atmosphere was great, open floor plan...tv available to catch the ball game...nice decor. Another plus, right next to MASS Moca, world renowned museum. A definite recommend!

I used to compare all mussels to my first favorite version at Fore Street in Portland ME -- a long long time ago... but my favorites now are both at restaurants named PUBLIC -- here in MA and another in Savannah GA... Both versions add sausage and kale and tomatoes and grilled ciabatta Fantastic! Start with the Caesar salad and be sure to ask for a large spoon to get every last drop of the terrific broth... We've also tried the Rigatoni -- again with the house make sausage and my husband's favorite is the tempura batter fish and chips. The burgers are beautifully presented and are another highlight. As for the atmosphere -- we've been dining in this great space for many years -- starting with the memorable Gideons -- but we love the latest occupant --PUBLIC eat + drink -- and we hope they're in place for a long long time...
