New American Pub Food

Whatever you eat at Sessions Public will be tasty, interesting, and comforting, and won’t require a bank loan to pay for it.

Whenever possible, we choose local, sustainable food sources and vendors. We do that because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it tastes better.

Our menu is made up of small plates, shared plates, sandwiches, and salads, and large plates. There are no rules. Choose whatever you like and share it if you want. Small plates start at $5 (like Serrano Ham or Blistered Tomatoes with Artisan Bread). Shared plates range from $7 for Alsatian Onion Tart to $12 for Sautéed Crab Cakes. Sandwiches and salads are in the $8 to $14 range, while no large plate is over $20.

As our consulting chef says, “Every dish on the menu is an example of someone’s idea of comfort food.” That’s why you’ll find Fries with Garlic Aioli dipping sauce or Thinly Sliced Serrano Air-Dried Beef nestled up to Duck Confit Thai Summer Rolls, and the savory Alsatian Onion Tart sharing space with Spicy Calamari and Salt & Pepper Wings. You’ll see dipping sauces offered with many of our dishes – because who doesn’t love to dip their next bite in something yummy?

Our sandwiches and salads are all your favorites with a twist, like a natural beef burger topped with local Gouda cheese, arugula, confit tomatoes and onion garlic aioli – all from local sources. Carnivores will snap up short rib sliders or a BLT made with Nueske tempura bacon, but if you’re vegetarian the roasted Portobello mushroom with fresh Mozzarella sandwich is for you. On the salad side, our Cobb features spicy wild Mexican prawns along with bacon, a farm-fresh egg, avocado, blistered tomatoes and a sriracha dressing. Or go for a frisée with duck, poached egg, and shaved asparagus.

The large plates have something for everyone, from duck with udon noodles to fresh pasta, seared albacore with mole, brick chicken with quinoa, or lobster and scallop cioppino. A dessert selection from a local patisserie will change daily.
