Publican Quality Meats is the offshoot of The Publican and is a popular lunch spot for people who work in the Loop. It is not only a café, bakery and restaurant, it also stocks great cuts of meat as well, along with cheeses, salamis and other gourmet offerings. It is my favourite lunch spot when I have the day off or on the weekends to catch up with friends over a quick bite and drink.
They have beers and Bloody Marys but I go there for the variety of sandwiches on their menu, which keep changing. The bread used is always fresh baked at their in-house bakery. The gyro versions are my favourite and they currently have a pomegranate glazed pork belly gyro sandwich on offer. The spinach and kale salad and the marinated kale as a side are also my favourite dishes. They have a patio open in the summers allowing you to bask in the sun at lunch time as it is at the perfect angle.
