You ever feel like some restaurants were put together in a boardroom where a bunch of middle managers spent an afternoon brainstorming what the kids are into these days? With pajama brunch parties, whimsical pop art on the walls, and a menu that refers to alcoholic drinks as “adult bevys,” Publico in Southie is kind of like that. Still, it’s a perfectly fine neighborhood option if you’re in the mood for Latin-ish food, and the ski-themed lodge they set up in the atrium in the winter months makes it a good place to wait out a snowstorm.
