From the folks behind Amsterdam Ale House and Third Avenue Ale House, Church Publick aims to be both a bar—with 22 beers on draft—and a restaurant, serving everything from snacks to sandwiches to large salads to pastas to entrées. (Delivery should be available eventually.) The room, which has a high enough ceiling that there’s room for a balcony with seating (and, in time, a reserve wine and beer room, glassed-off and climate controlled), has been given a touch of patina, with exposed brick and reclaimed wood. Church Publick seats around 88, although it feels like fewer, because the seats are spread out at the bar, bar tables, dining tables, booths, and on the balcony. Most notably, perhaps: no TVs. As for the name, the “k” is for old-school zest.

  1. Too pricey for the many government workers in the area. How about discounts?
