We pride ourselves on truly caring about your events’ vision and individual needs.
Even though Drew was very satisfied with what endive catering had become he still felt the desire to open his vision to the publik and began planning his own restaurant. He already had the space conveniently located in the front of his catering business. He climbed get a liquor license mountain and get a zoning variance mountain and soon after opened endive publik house. The vision of what we offer our guests is value priced, high quality food, thoughtfully prepared and presented in a sincerely accommodating atmosphere.
Opening your own restaurant while running an established catering company was a daunting proposition to fathom so Drew decided to open his restaurant part time. Opening its doors to the publik limited to three dinners a week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
