Public School's New Summer Menu
IMG_1663I've always been a big fan of Public School. No, not the school system, but the gastropubs! (Actually, I'm a proud graduate of the LAUSD public school system!) I've written about Public School before for LAist, so click here to check out previous posts. For those unfamiliar with Public School, they are gastropubs with a school theme throughout the venue. It's so well executed. The napkins are notebook paper. The menus are composition notebooks. Left overs are known as "Incomplete Homework Assignments." Not only it the theme amazing, but the food and drinks are delicious. Aside from the theme, my favorite part of Public School is that every few months, they switch up the menu with whatever seasonal ingredients are freshest. The dishes always keep me guessing and excited to go back for more! Public School just released their latest summer menu so I was there to taste-test a few of their newest items.

Here's the Grilled Watermelon & Heirloom Tomato Stack off Public School's new summer menu. I loved the touch of feta, balsamic, and marcona almonds! So this "salad" may seem a bit strange given the different flavor facets in the dish, but it really works. Plus, the watermelon is crisp and super sweet. It's in season right now and the fruit really makes for the perfect juxtaposition to the tomato and feta. This was a highlight of my lunch!IMG_1639The new Pizza Di Verdure was one of the best pizzas I'd had in recent memory. It looked like a pizza full of vegetables so it's like eating a healthy salad, right? Lol. But seriously, this was delicious. The pizza comes with zucchini, angry arrabbiata sauce, caramelized onions, basil, goat cheese, truffle oil, lemon gremolata. Amazing! You guys have to go and order this while it's available. IMG_1668The new Falafel Wrap with cucumber, tomato, arugula, mezze, cranberry chutney, za’atar yogurt. If you're a fan of falafel, then you'll love this. IMG_1653

I ended my meal with a delicious strawberry cream puff dessert! I absolutely am on board for Public School's summer menu. By the way, you need to try their fresh squeezed orange juice or mimosas! I swear there is some crack in that drink or something. Also, don't forget they have some great alcoholic drinks as well on tap.
