About Publican Tavern

Based on renowned Chicago eatery, The Publican, Publican Tavern offers a delicious taste of Chicago’s world-class culinary scene for travelers of Chicago O’Hare International Airport in a warm and inviting space. The restaurant integrates the same pioneering philosophy and approach to creating unique dishes that have led The Publican’s original Fulton Market District location to capture the minds, mouths, and stomachs of Chicago’s in-the-know restaurant-goers.
