Celebrated husband and wife chef duo Walter and Margarita Manzke have transformed the famed Mid City building that once housed La Brea Bakery and Campanile into a bastion of modern French cooking. République incorporates a casual bakery, café, and bar in the front of the space, including a soaring central nave with a glass ceiling and neo-gothic detailing, as well as a more formal dining area in the rear. Most of the spaces can be rented or combined for private events to suit your partie’s size and needs. The alcove is the smallest space, perched above the main dining room, with seating for up to eight guests. The left bank, an intimate room upstairs for groups seeking total privacy, features an exposed brick wall on one side and a glass-walled wine cellar on the other, with a single long wooden table that seats up to eighteen. The right bank, a semi-private area overlooking the main dining room, seats up to 36 guests at three side by side tables. The main dining room accommodates up to 68 guests seated, while a full buyout of the space offers seating for 154.
