To those who know me this will come as no surprise, I am not a morning person. I also have a hard time with big food that early. Eggs for me is a light supper with a salad and a bottle of wine. Now that REPUBLIC is open and fully operational, I walk into incredible espresso and our baker’s creations every morning. We have biscotti, scones, cinnamon twist bread, galettes (small sweet and savory open faced pies), almond horns with chocolate, quiche and small panini.
Our baker Ryan Musgrove, trained in Germany and also makes our amazing country rye that we use on the croque sandwiches. It is strange for me to have an employee that I only see on payday since Ryan begins his day ( or night) at 1 AM and leaves before I arrive. If you come in just as we open at 7 AM on weekdays, you may catch sight of him. If he appears a bit pale, that’s just the flour.
Also, Claudia my wife- business partner- lover- teacher – accomplished photographic artist, has a show opening on Wednesday at the NH Institute of Art Gallery, 77 Amherst St, Manchester (www.nhia.edu) from 9 am to 5 pm . She will be displaying pieces from her Graffiti series and also some of her pin-hole work. After the show I know a good place for a drink, small bite or a coffee!!!
See you soon
