On Feb 21, 2017 REPUBLIC was born. A dream spanning many years has come to be.
In short six months, REPUBLIC became a second home for many of you. You tasted our coffees and food, admired the space and showered us with compliments.
You have come from near and far places. You were the ones we built REPUBLIC for - the ones who appreciated beauty, good times and most of all food made with lots of love.
You told us time and time again our Lebanese street food has no equal. It is the sweetest compliment we could ask for.
You proved we were right - the concept is sound.
However, our location on Nelson Street turned out to be an unexpected challenge due to the difficulty to draw constant daily flow of traffic. This, along with the inability for customers to park on the street and our limited funding have brought an early end to the life of this jewel.
Our doors are now closed.
We cannot thank you enough for every visit, conversation, feedback, laughter and good time you have given us. Thank you for your support and for going on this ride with us.
We will miss you dearly.
May the REPUBLIC rise again.
