Public Kitchen and Bar Review (Providence)

Went here twice now, before a show at the Vets and a movie. Very pleasantly surprised. First time, I started the meal with a frise salad that was excellent. BItterness of the greens was offset by bits of bacon and cheese and other things I can't remember. Long story short - perfectly balanced, not overly dressed and fresh salad. For the entree I got a trio of tacos - fish, pork and beef. Very tasty, I like the variety in one meal, and a good price point. For drinks I ordered an "Argyll" Manhattan (because they use scotch and bourbon whisky). It was very well made. Service was just fine as well, and I also like the decor (less clubby and more intimate/casual than when it was Temple restaurant - it's in the Renaissance Hotel). I will be back again. The menu is well constructed with full size entrees, small plates and apps. Prices are reasonable and the chef seems to care. Definitely recommended.
