Edge eatery hits NoLIta

21 November 2003 – Celebrated ex-pat chefs Peter Gordon and Anna Hansen (the team behind London’s The Providores and Tapa) have opened a new restaurant in New York’s trendy NoLIta district – Public.  In a glowing review, the  New York Times describes Public as “an extreme example of Antipodean fusion cuisine,” one which transports diners to “the far end of the known culinary universe.” The New York Daily News is similarly entranced: “Eating here requires a sense of adventure; the chefs here find their pleasure in cockeyed juxtapositions of atypical ingredients, often prepared in a strait-laced fashion … To be sure, a place this fun won’t stay hidden long.”
