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?
