Quick: who has been to Republic in Las Colinas? No? OK, who has been to Las Colinas? Did you know that there is a restaurant called Republic in Las Colinas? Now you do. And they’ve just hired a new chef-Kent Lemmons former cop turned chef. He started his kitchen career at Rough Creek Lodge and, like everyone else in the culinary world, did a stint with Dean Fearing at the Mansion before becoming the sous chef at Trece. Now he’s the big man on campus at Republic. Road trip anyone?
