Republic Cantina Preview at Sally's Middle Name

January 21, 2019 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Join us for an exclusive preview dinner for our upcoming Tex-Mex restaurant & cafe, Republic Cantina. We're pleased to offer a sample of items from our in-progress menu (launching soon in Truxton Circle!)




Our menu will spotlight several true-to-form Tex-Mex classics, alongside creative spins inspired by the magnificent landscape of Texan flavors. Note: vegetarian versions are optionally available for all dishes (we'll follow up prior to the event to confirm any dietary restrictions). Menus are subject to change but the following is representative of a typical preview dinner:

  • 1. Queso Compuesto: 'Proper' Texas Queso w/ Brisket Picadillo, Guacamole & Pico de Gallo
  • 2. Guacamole Salad: Avocado, Lime, Chicharrón, 'Crunchy Bits,' Bibb Lettuce
  • 3. Tuna 'Al Pastor' Tostada: Smoked Tuna, Guacamole, Piña Relish, Serranos
  • 4. Cheese & Brisket Enchiladas: Brisket Sausage Enchilada w/ Cheese and Traditional Chili Gravy
  • 5. Tres Leches Banana Pudding: Vanilla Cake, Leche Pudding, Caramelized Bananas, Wafers

The ticket cost covers all food (a 5-course pre fixe tasting menu); an optional cocktail/beer/wine pairing is available for purchase on-site, in addition to a full bar for a la carte drink purchases.

Our next preview dinners will take place Mon-Tues, Jan 14/15 and Jan 21/22. Each night we're offering a limited number of spaces for two separate seatings:

  • 6:30p: arrive between 6-6:20pm for a drink at the bar; dinner service will begin promptly at 6:30pm and wrap around 8pm
  • 7:00p: arrive between 6:30-6:50pm for a drink at the bar; dinner service will begin promptly at 7pm and wrap around 8:30pm

We'll be rolling out additional dates for future preview dinners; if you can't make these dates, email Chris to be added to our waitlist and you'll be the first to know when additional dates are announced!


See you out there,
