I met up with an old friend who suggested Public House, a relatively new bar in Ferndale. The menu was mostly only appetizers and sliders.
It was a nice airy yet cozy bar with a great beer and spirit selection, and interesting cocktails. As soon as I saw someone get a drink in a tiki glass, I immediately ordered one for myself. It was basically a very sweet and fruity Long Island iced tea.
We decided to get the hush puppies with prosecution and classic sliders. The hush puppies weren’t exactly what I expected. I was thinking more Long John Silvers style with a little onion, but theses were just fried balls of cornbread that were good, but could use a little salt. The prosciutto and honey butter helped.
The sliders were great! They had about 13 different varieties for a couple of bucks each.
I could see myself coming here as a start to my evening, or making a night of it if I was going to stay for a few cocktails.
