PUBLIC HOUSE CELEBRATES IT’S 5TH ANNIVERSARY

And I was there. It was a great night. Packed with lots of fun people that weren’t too out of control.
Tara Nurin states: You know your country’s cuisine has come a long way when a restaubar advertises its menu as “Great American Pub” style then fills it with hummus, chorizo and wok-fried pot stickers alongside of its Carolina fish & chips and St. Louis BBQ ribs. If one’s looking for that elusive all-American feel, though, this is it.
A sprawling space on the bottom floor of an office building, this highly polished wood-and-brass pub shuffles in its power broker financial attorneys for co-worker lunches and meet market happy hours, then gives way to post-post-frat house DJ parties and equally testosterone-scented and preppy football viewings.

Guest, Reggie Berry, Jacky Wright, and the Mayor join the crowd for the anniversary party. Reggie was doing a little celebrating himself as it was his birthday.

I should have done some cropping in this picture to focus on the beauty that is Laura Powers, Christie Honigman, Michelle Rossi-Simoni and Elisha Rampolla. Laura works for KB Consultants and today’s a big day for them as their client Le Merdian opens their doors to the public. Read all about their drink menu in my column PhillyMag.com today.
