The Publick House
This cozy Washington Square bar offers more than 150 types of artisanal beers, all served at the right temperature in appropriate glassware. Plus, the “cuisine a la biere’’ (food cooked, and made to be eaten, with beer) is off the charts. Think mussels steamed in spices, garlic, and tempting beers. We could go on. And on. Maybe you should just stop by for a few pints.
Besides the beer: Looking for some place to warm up this winter? Cozy up next to the fireplace or order some of the noteworthy macaroni and cheese. This tavern is easily one of the coziest around.
