James Republic

500 E. 1st St. Long Beach, CA 90802 | Long Beach | 562-901-0235

Location Description:

James Republic is a Long Beach restaurant that offers American bistro food. It has such lovable quirks as using jars for just about every appetizer and dessert. To back up claims that it’s “sustainable,” James Republic recycles its old menus to use as doilies. And because of this ethos—one that no new restaurant these days goes without—the menu changes daily. Named after chef Dean James Max—the empire-building, James Beard-nominated chef responsible for other high-achieving restaurants—the place counts the time since it opened, with its days printed atop the menus and scrawled on a chalkboard near the kitchen. How a dish reads one day will be different than the days before or after. Get the potato puree, which will be served in a jar you wished you had longer fingers to squeegee, and then finish with the warm, sticky toffee bread pudding, which is actually served on a plate.
