Funny Nurse and I have recently set out on a quest to make the most of her short time in NYC by trying various higher end-ish restaurants (that neither of us have been to) with an emphasis on tasting menus.  Sadly, Public doesn’t offer a tasting menu on Saturdays, which I found odd.  We even tried to drunkenly schmooze the waitress.  I don’t know – maybe they can throw something together?  “Is there like a chef’s menu,” I asked with a smile?  I suppose that I imagined she would look left and then right, snuff out the candle, pull out a dusty menu from her cleavage, lean in really close, and whisper something fantastic into my ear about secret foods.  “That’s on Sundays,” she said.  Still, I could not have been happier about our four dishes.
