If you live in the general vicinity of North Hollywood, I’ve found you a destination. Republic of Pie is just about one of the most pleasant places to pass an evening that I’ve ever encountered.
Before I inundate you with pictures, let me sum up our experience in a few sentences.
‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving. (I know, wrong holiday.) Live music on Wednesday: a blast. Bottles were played. Jigs were danced. Furnished like an eclectic and cozy living room. Felt right at home. Savories were delightful, but piping hot. Don’t burn your mouth! Why have I never thought to put macaroni and cheese inside a pie? Friendly staff, including doppelganger of one Ellese Forbes. Earl Grey Lattes recommended. Hard to be critical when I mostly bake pies one or two at a time, but the pastry left something to be desired-not enough flake for me. Cute pictures in the bathroom. Pros outweighed cons. Hire me?
Have you ever been? What was your experience like? Comments welcome. Thanks RoP for spreading the joy of pie.
