"Chef Victor’s Chili is the perfect dish for this cold + rainy day! 🌧 Made with duck confit, beans, roasted poblanos, avocado, radish, watercress, fried egg, and served with housemade corn bread (made with blue corn masa). _____ #RepubliqueLA #duckchili #rainydayvibes"

"When BAE is Bacon And Eggs .. you know it’s true love 🥓❤️🍳 Have you tried our Bacon Burrata Toast yet? Our housemade sourdough toast loaded with all your favorite things—burrata cheese, tomato, avocado, ba(e)con, arugula, fried egg, and freshly shaved parmesan. 2017 may be coming to an end, but a classic never goes out of style. Come join us for NYE brunch tomorrow! We are closed on January 1st but we’ll be partying at @pettycashla’s Bartender Brunch! (See previous post) Hope to see you soon!! #NationalBaconDay #🥓 #RepubliqueLA #burratatoast #baeislife"
