Republic Restaurant or Jar

Am taking friends out to dinner. Anyone been to Republic? Love Jar, but looking for something new.
Thanks all

    Republic is definitely worth a visit but the food is not in the same league as the food at Jar.

      I liked the Republic -- good environs (if you're lucky, you can catch the 'wine fairy' in action ;) ) -- and I'm head-over-heels about their bourbon-glazed doughnuts.

        I found Jar to be extremely average.

          I went to Republic with two friends a couple of months ago and we all loved the food. And we tend to be fairly particular. The veal Porterhouse in particular was incredible. But everything we tried, save the raw surf and turf, was excellent and creative.
