There’s a restaurant opening in Hod Hasharon that’s making waves as far as Tel Aviv,
which is about 20 minutes away. It’s much-anticipated opening is creating quite the buzz around the city.
Republic is a success story in the making. This modern brasserie comes from a group of
influential people in the hospitality industry. They include Ori Raz from the founders of Social
Club, Pappa’s, and 223, Kiko Belluco, who is behind the well-loved Kalamata restaurant, Ronen
Shemesh, Instagram star and hospitality maven, and Eli Ben Harush, who is known for his
years in the restaurant world. If having a collective of food industry professionals known for
pulling off the best of places is not the secret of success, then I don’t know what is.
This sexy-chic spot is headed by Chef Avi Cohen, whose experience spans from some of themost popular restaurants in the city such as Social Club, Abraxas North, Umami, and Tapeo.
On the menu, you will find innovative brasserie food alongside a fun and detailed cocktail list.
You’ll find lettuce wraps stuffed with Korean chicken and fresh peanuts, whole cauliflower
from the wood-fired oven, and black linguini with chili, calamari, and white wine.
The drinks menu is both flirty and innovative, including white sangrias with cinnamon and
cooked pears, the Cancun special with tequila, berries and pineapple juice as well as the Viva
Fidel with Bacardi, lime, cucumbers, mint, and soda.
Republic is located at Hangar 24, Hod Hasharon, 09-8878800
