Republic is a great place to grab some drinks and come great food. All the food is brought in locally and all organic free range. They change the menu for the changing seasons so one dish might not be there if you go back some months later. They even make their own ice cream. You can fill up on seasonal, organic and homemade items. Just a note, some plates can get expensive. Perfect place for a celebration dinner such as a anniversary or a date.
