In less than two years, Republic Kitchen and Bar in Ballston has made a strong impression on Arlington locals. Just across the street from Liberty Center, this bright, inviting restaurant exudes a casual yet classy atmosphere. The menu, on the other hand, centers around “contemporary comfort food” and features traditional burgers, steak, chicken, and seafood with just a hint of flair. The beer list places an emphasis on craft brews, so you’ll find lots of local breweries represented.
The atmosphere is relaxed, yet modern, and it is not uncommon to see someone at the bar in a t-shirt and jeans watching the game next to a suit-wearing neighbor on the next stool. During meal hours, Republic Kitchen and bar is the type of place where you’ll find lunch meetings, casual dates, or office-mates congregating for happy hour. Later in the evening, the atmosphere shifts toward live music, comedy, and trivia competitions.
