Ferndale favorite Public House retools with vegan menu and revamped patio

When the original Public House opened in 2013, the Metro Times’ Noelle Lothamer nailed its formula for success: “Choose an area of town with a high concentration of people in their 20s and 30s who like to go out often but don’t want to spend fine-dining dollars. Reel in the crowds with low-priced, trendy menu items and good ambiance, and then cash in as patrons spend most of their money on their bar tabs.”
