30 Water Street

 

 

The dead rabbit is a cozy bar downtown located in a brownstone from the 1800's... It's a cozy bilevel space where we only got to look at the first floor.. There are tons of photos on the ceilings, lots of wood and old timey memorabilia.  It's a wonderful little spot.  Reading about it now, i see that it won best cocktail bar in the world at Tales of the Cocktails.. Unfortunately, or fortunately, we only had a couple of beers.. I was drinking, their namesake cask beer produced by Sixpoints.. It was quite good..

The menu is English/Irish.. They have pot pie and fish and chips, a burger and a few other items.. We opted for the bar snacks plate and the Corned Beef with Coleslaw and Gruyere.  

 

Bar snacks was not very impressive.. some carrots, some nuts.. for 12 bucks, it was rather sparce

Served on lightly toasted rye, it was a delicious sandwich..

Bar tender was super nice.. They like to be on first name basis with people.. I was watching him make some beautiful cocktails..I guess next time, we know what to do.. But, that corned beef went really well with my beer.. 

 

Even Jax liked the sandwich and the fries.  Fries were typical bar fries, or chips I guess..

I'm pretty sure we've talked about Dead Rabbit elsewhere; it just got buried on some other thread(s).

 

One of the places I miss from downtown--not that we went that many times, but still.

Looks like they won't reopen until spring, 2019.

 

Per their FB page:

 

Remember those new coasters we talked about yesterday? The ones that say ‘Born in a hurricane, forged in a fire’? Well, we’re all staring hard at them today. One of the biggest consequences of the fire – and some new red tape and legal issues that have arisen – is, unfortunately, the extension. Or, more accurately, its opening date. We’ve been forced to postpone it until next Spring.

The tap room downstairs was open last Sunday. The kitchen was offering cold plates for lunch service.

Yeah, to be clear, they're open now. This references the expansion into the building next door.

Ahhh, thanks for the clarification. Even though now that I read what they posted, it does say "the extension."
