Republique, located in mid-city, is owned by Chef Walter Manzke and Chef Margarita Manzke along with their partner, restaurateur Bill Chait. Centered in the heart of Los Angeles in an iconic building originally erected in 1929 as Charlie Chaplin’s offices, which was then transformed into La Brea Bakery and Campanile, the restaurant builds on its storied past with its latest incarnation, offering the public a gastronomic environment of history and grandeur. The space will feature a casual bar and bistro in the front with a more formal restaurant located in the rear, both of which are rooted in French cuisine. Republique will bring a vibrant new dining destination to one of the most architecturally unique and beautifully understated locations in Los Angeles.

"Republique is one of the most exciting restaurants visually I've been to in a long time. Warm and inviting , from the bar area to the dining room in back it's a stunner. We started withe the beet salad which included farro and goat cheese but could have included more beets. The octopus salad was an interesting take with fresh mint and a bright, acidic dressing. The pasta with mushrooms and sausage had a creamy deliciousness that I couldn't define but was outstanding. The steak with files came undercooked but was better on the second try. A very pleasant dining experience accept for the 3% surcharge they try to impose for health insurance. Just build it into the price of the food and forget it."

"Packed to the rafters with the beautiful people of Newport Beach and beyond, Red 0 is a place to see and be scene. Go to the bar, have a drink and either their chips and salsa or very good ceviches and forget the rest. Seated at a table in Stberia ( the patio) its much quieter but out of the way of what's happening. We ordered the lobster tacos which were tasteless and my husband had the short ribs quesadillas which came cold, we're sent back and returned cold. The staff were very accommodating and ride to rectify the situation but don't bother. Go for a drink have fun and forget the food."
