I recently tried Rabbit in the Moon, a fairly new gastropub in the West Village. I was there for drinks a few days before and I wanted to go back because I thought the setup was so cool. There are two floors, two bars, and every table is unique; tucked away in some corner or cove, kind of how I would imagine the local pub to feel like if one existed in Alice in Wonderland. A cozy, cool feel with just the right amount of creepy old-fashioned British. The drinks were delicious and strong too…
We shared a bunch of appetizers: roasted scallops, salmon belly tartar, and some housemade ricotta gnocchi. It was all good. The scallops were the best, perfectly cooked and finished off with caviar. We both agreed that they were some of the best in NYC.
I enjoyed everything at Rabbit in the Moon, the only gripe my friend had was some of the music. Billy Joel, MGMT, I liked it, but those of you who know me understand that my musical tastes are somewhat questionable, I’ll stick to food. While the food on the menu sounds heavy, it was nice… The portions were appropriate and the ingredients were fresh. I’m definitely planning on going back and/or recommending Rabbit in the Moon to friends!
P.S. While the Internet has given it mixed reviews regarding bouncers, (
), my friend and I thought it was awesome. The food is great, drinks are tasty, and the people inside are pretty… yeah I said it.
