Mike Randolph will close Público in December
Another critically acclaimed restaurant will close its doors at the end of 2018. Owners Mike and Liz Randolph announced today, Nov. 14, they will close Público after service Dec. 22.
The Randolphs opened the pan-Latin American restaurant on The Loop in 2015. Público garnered Mike Randolph national recognition, including three James Beard semifinalist nods for Best Chef: Midwest. Sauce dubbed it the Best New Restaurant of 2015.
“We dared to do something different in St. Louis,” the Randolphs said in a statement. “We were one of the first wood-fire concepts here, and we utilize that hearth for almost everything on our menu. We interpreted Latin cuisine in new and interesting ways, and we ARE proud of everything that goes out of the kitchen still today. With that said, the restaurant scene is changing, so it’s important to frequent the restaurants that you love.”
Mike Randolph did not immediately return requests for comment.
