I never see Republic mentioned on the boards, but I had dinner there on Wednesday night, as the snow fell over Union Square, and I thought the two dishes I had were rather good. I started with the fried wontons, which were perfectly fried and not greasy, served with an addictive sweet/hot chili sauce. Unfortunately they have discontinued the fired calamari, which was even better. Then I had a bowl of spicy duck curry noodles, perfect for a winter night, which was curry noodle soup with pieces of shredded duck. The duck was okay, but the broth was delicious and spicy, and definitely fortified me for the snowy walk after i ate.
I'm curious if anyone else has any thougths about this place.
