This Lower East Side restaurant has come to be regarded as the tastemaking cabin-in-the-’hood at the end of the now-legendary alley. In the oft-copied taxidermied environs, the hearty menu additions include a charred tender quail atop buttery grits, and a generous rabbit roulade entrée of boneless bacon-wrapped bunny (the signature bar snacks remain—there wasn’t even a question of tampering with the cult artichoke dip). Simple desserts—caramel-soaked bananas Foster, toasted carrot-walnut cake—are the sort you’d find in restaurants without a pastry chef. But they’re good enough.

Delicious! From drinks, to their FANTASTIC artichoke dip, to the entree, everything was incredible. Very pricey (you'll notice from other reviews that I'm quite stingy when going out), but this place is worth it. Best food I've had in awhile.
