You love everything from the muffaletta to the morteau sausage in the case. (OMG is that iberico ham stock in the fridge? It is.) But if there’s one thing that nobody has particularly loved, it’s how you get served at Publican Quality Meats— a confusing process of ordering here, taking a big cardboard number there, waiting to sit, and God forbid you want something to eat and something from the butchers at the same time and that time happens to be lunchtime and packed. Well, all that is in the past, because as of right now, it’s all going to be different.
Starting today, Publican Quality Meats will go to a hostess-run, table-ordering system. (That also takes care of the problem with the light fixture that’s right in front of the menu board.) You’ll sit, have an actual menu, and order from your table. Meanwhile, if you’re there for take-out goods, you’ll order directly from the butchers, but with less competition. And finally, with good weather presumably ahead, there should be a good few months to use the sidewalk cafe whose furniture is on order and coming soon; it will wrap around both sides of the corner building. Check it out and let us know how the new system works— and by the way, we can recommend the new chicken parm on their own crusty bread.
