Republic Kitchen & Bar Has Apparently Closed in Ballston

Republic Kitchen & Bar (801 N. Quincy Street) has been shuttered for the past several days and may be closed for good.

The Ballston eatery has a sign in the window that reads “We close [sic] to make some changes today, sorry for your inconvenience.” Its phone number, meanwhile, has been disconnected, as has its website. The restaurant’s Facebook page was last updated Jan. 16.

Another sign in the window — this one handwritten — states that the local backgammon club has moved its meeting to Carpool, at least temporarily.

Republic opened in 2014, replacing the former Leek American Bistro, which replaced the former Thai Terrace.

Republic served “modern comfort food” and took on something of a lounge atmosphere at night. After it opened, Republic’s owner bragged that the food was so fresh the microwave in the kitchen wasn’t even plugged in and was being used for storage.
