"Dinner before dessert" is among the most onerous of childhood rules, as it's directly responsible for the fact that childhood doesn't. For a guy brazenly going in the reverse order cause he's a grown-up now and does whatever he wants: Rabbit.
The first foray into real meals by the guy behind Red Velvet Cupcakery and Tangysweet, Rabbit serves up health-conscious salads, sandwiches, and grilled-to-order proteins in a slate-tiled Clarendon space creating a “rabbit-inspired décor” via reclaimed wood, appropriate, as that's pretty much what those over-sexed animals sport constantly. Grilled goodness includes your choice of sliced and marinated flank steak, chicken, or crusted tofu with red bell peppers/ zucchini/ tomato, all of which're served with an herb salad/ "smashed potatoes” in a combo they call their "Hot Plates", also a phrase uttered by Paris Hilton approximately 170 times when visiting a Crate & Barrel. Artisanal sandwiches run from a seared tuna joint with roasted red peppers/ arugula/ aioli, to a braised pork shoulder Cuban, to a grilled white bread, fresh-strawberry-jammed hot PB & J, also a phrase Paris Hilton utters every day at lunchtime.
Because what's a peanut butter sandwich without lots of beers, Rabbit's also thoughtfully hooked up two drafts from Lost Rhino: their New River pale ale, and their Rhino Chasers Pilsner, both of which should be alluring enough to ensure you break that other annoying childhood rule, and run inside.
