The whimsical, yet gritty Alice in Wonderland-themed restaurant presents an elevated, yet approachable menu of creative plates by Hoover (formerly of Butcher’s Tap). An array of sharable appetizers, hearty salads, “grabbers” (otherwise known as meat-heavy platters), and an assortment of tasty side dishes are sure to please a variety of taste preferences. Tried-and-true standout dishes include Chicken Wings tossed in a choice of house buffalo, shogun sweet chili, Chef Diablo’s habanero or pomegranate BBQ, served with tri-colored carrots, jicama, house made ranch or bleu cheese, marinated Steakhouse Minis, The 1951 Burger, Queen of Hearts salad, and Jabberwock Angus Sliders. Those looking for a sweet and savory starter will find refuge in the Candied Slab Bacon featuring thick cut, Applewood smoked slab bacon, grilled and glazed with maple syrup.
To complement the cuisine, or accompany the viewing of any big sports game, The Rabbit Hole offers a vast selection of craft and draft beers including 24 beer taps and a host of canned and bottled brews. Inspired by characters in the fantasy movie, the cocktail menu by beverage director Carlos Guerra features drinks with memorable monikers like the smoky White Rabbit on a Dirty Mule with Mezcal, ginger beer, lime juice, Jägermeister, and grapefruit juice, or the delicate yet complex Tweedle Rum with rum, rye, coffee vermouth, coconut, Fernet Dogma and cinnamon, to name just two. Offering something for everyone, a variety of wines and non-alcoholic beverages round out the menu.
The Rabbit Hole’s name and aesthetic inspiration is also drawn from the classic film, Alice in Wonderland, and portrays imaginative artwork that evokes a sense of nostalgia, including a portrait of the White Rabbit. A sports-friendly bar, with ten large screen TVs, it also serves as a distinctive backdrop for the viewing of any game. For added entertainment, The Rabbit Hole offers Live Band Karaoke on Wednesday evenings beginning at 9pm, and games for guests, such as Jenga and large-scale Pictionary. The 1,300 square-foot space accommodates 42 guests in the main dining space, 36 around the bar, and an additional 8 on the outdoor patio.
