Public House reopens

Originally opened in 2013, Ferndale’s Public House was temporarily closed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Then, Public House and neighboring Antihero were sold to the Hometown Restaurant Group, formerly known as Kramer Restaurant Group. Owner-operator Brian Kramer also owns Pop’s for Italian, One Eyed Betty’s and Rosie O’Grady’s, all located in downtown Ferndale. “Ferndale just feels like home,” Kramer said “It’s a community, and Public House is a staple in the community, and I didn’t want to see it closed.” Focusing on high quality comfort food, craft cocktails and a rustic-chic atmosphere, the new Public House & Garden builds on its gastropub roots while branching out with a new vegan menu, focusing on gourmet burgers, sandwiches and shareable plates. Vegan and/or gluten free offerings make up much of the Public House menu, including hot n’ sweet crispy cauliflower, barbecued carrots, beet salad and crispy house-made tempeh bacon. The real stars of both menus are the burgers, both on the vegan side and carnivore side. The eatery’s planned opening was December 21. 241 W. 9 Mile, Ferndale,
