Maccheroni Republic

[Note: This is a scheduled post while I’m away in Korea!]

Too many restaurants in DTLA. A good problem to have, I suppose. My friend Meesh celebrated her b-day last month at Maccheroni Republic, and the two of us went back the other night and ordered the same exact dish we both got the first time.

Maccheroni Republic is an Italian restaurant tucked away on Broadway and has been open less than a year. You can choose to sit indoors or in the outdoor covered patio area (with white lights strung above!). The patio area is surrounded by greenery, hiding the (not so attractive) street view.

The weather was perfect the evening we went, so we sat outside.  We both ordered the spaghetti vongole (“spaghettini with Manila clams in a garlic white wine broth”).

We ordered the calamari and devoured that (and the bread + oil/balsamic) as an appetizer, even though we had just talked about how we should be careful with our cholesterol levels. Oops.

Left: A view of the DTLA buildings. Right: The spaghetti vongole, YUM! They give you SO many clams, which pleases me. While I was telling Meesh a story, she devoured 3/4 of her dish and I had to eat pretty much by myself the rest of the meal. Hahaa.

Indoor decor– exposed brick, antiquey furniture. Also– this restaurant is BYOB, which is always an awesome perk.
