Venturing inside Black Rabbit, you may feel like you’ve been transported to a 19th-century British pub: weathered floorboards lead past a sleek, dark bar, over which a set of chandeliers casts a dim glow. If the fireplace and framed photos of your disapproving great-great-uncle aren’t cozy enough, then it’s a great time to slip past the swinging doors into one of the bar’s private snugs, which New York Magazine describes as “… so private that you’ll need to button-activate a lightbulb to get your waiter’s attention.” While the décor takes one back in time, the pub food stays decidedly modern. The menu includes mini burgers served with a side of Ruffles chips, along with seasonal pickle plates, bratwurst, and Frito pie. And if the bar’s selection of board games or the comedian-hosted bingo night gets to be too much fun, guests can always slip out back to the garden, a shaded-area decked with picnic tables.
