(I've personally seen all three of these characters walking around my hood. In the past week.)
You also can't walk a block without stumbling upon a some hip and delicious looking
restaurant or café. And unlike my struggles with healthy eating in Paris, almost all of them offer a wide variety of vegetarian/vegan options at quasi-reasonable prices.
I'd passed Rabbithole before, and was instantly intrigued by its Alice in Wonderland reference and shabby chic decor. So when my foodie friend recommended I go there for lunch the other day, I jumped (hopped?) at the opportunity.
I was hooked on this place right from the start. We were greeted by super friendly staff, and headed toward the back to dine outside on their garden patio. I loved the interior vibe as well - a mix of cozy couches and antique tables with whimsical touches like a monkey chandelier and funky mirrors.
Their menu is new American, with plenty of comfort food options (Mac n' Cheese, Fish n' Chips, etc.) but also a good variety of healthy salad options.
We went light for the lunch, opting for some refreshing cold summer soup, a delicious quinoa salad with artichokes and tangy granny smith apples, and a surprisingly hearty beet, goat cheese and avocado sandwich. All three items were delicious, well-seasoned and fresh.
And as if I need yet another excuse to head back to this place, I hear they have a stellar brunch - the one meal I truly missed when I was in Paris. Buttermilk pancakes with cherry rhubarb compote and maple butter? I'm not sure I can even handle that...
Moral of the story, I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a light lunch or hearty dinner in the center of hipster-ville (or anyone with a Through the Looking Glass fetish.)
