Publican with kids ?

Wife and I really enjoyed dinner at Publican a couple of years ago. We are making another trip to Chicago in April - this time with our almost 5-year old and 1-year old. We take them out to eat pretty regularly, so they are reasonably well-behaved. While we'd love to eat there again, we obviously don't want to bother other diners or be somewhere that is uncomfortable having us.

Any thoughts on how they view kids at the restaurant and whether an early (5:30-ish) dinner might work ? Do you ever see kids there ?

  1. I could see that, you may want to see if you can reserve one of the perimeter booths. Obviously if you are placed at a communal table in the middle of the restaurant it might be more difficult for you guys. I have a 4 year old, and I would take her there at 5:30 (maybe not at 7).
