Tuesday’s Treats #164

Local Republic

Location: Lawrenceville, Ga

This is a really cool little joint in downtown Lawrenceville. The menu and the atmosphere is urban eclectic and the staff is friendly. It’s a bit of a small restaurant, by they do have an upstairs; so, if you walk in, and it appears packed downstairs, just check upstairs as well.

The pimento cheese bites are an A. M. A. Z. I. N. G. appetizer! It starts with a few crostini, topped with a scoop of pimento cheese, topped with a piece of bacon and a spicy jalapeño and sprinkled with smoked paprika. Wow! (and yes, I said spicy jalapeño, because these are full of seeds and pack a little punch!)

My husband ordered the fresh salmon on pimento cheese grits. Oh. My. He said it was one of the best he’s ever eaten. I ordered the Chicken and Cheese sandwich (much like a chicken philly), and as you can see from the pic, that thing is huge! I got mine with a side of grits as well. Everything was delicious, and almost everything they serve is farm to table fresh! They even have a listing of the local farms they use, as well as a daily special and a highlighted farm partner.

This was our first visit, and we will definitely be back! There are so many more menu items to try! Yum!!

Here is the website for you to find meal choices and location.
