The Publican, often named one of Chicago’s finest restaurants, conjures a colonial American beer hall with its massive communal tables, high-backed chairs, deep beer list, and James Beard award-winning chef Paul Kahan’s hallmark fare. Cheers to the Publican is a toast to the food he loves to make and share, the characters who produce the ingredients that inspires him, and the cooks he honors. CHF Marilyn Thoma Artistic Director Alison Cuddy joins Kahan for a conversation celebrating the “food personality” of The Publican.
