Going Public

A Classroom Full of Beer and Burgers

You remember school.

The teachers and tests and homework.

The bad lunches and even worse beer selection.

Well, this... is a better kind of school.

Learn something at Public School 214, an LA import that’s focused on leisure studies like good beer and patio brunches, opening this Thursday at the West Village.

Take a look at this place. It’s modeled after New York City public schools, and you can tell because of all the globes, microscopes and encyclopedias everywhere. But it’s also an eating-and-drinking establishment, and you can tell that by the big bar, open kitchen and dartboards. So it’s a real upgrade on the typical classroom.

Now that you know, you should bring some friends here for dinner. Have a few of those 24 beers on tap, share some bacon-cheddar tots with the table and don’t share the lamb Bolognese because that’s all yours. (See the menu.)

You should also know this: if you’re knocking off work early, you can attend “recess.” That’s what they call happy hour, and that involves $10 wine carafes. And on weekends, they’re serving brunch with eggs benedict pizza, stuffed french toast and “just about bottomless” mimosas.

Be reasonable, people.
