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.
