    I had a tasty rabbit dish at Caribou Cafe a couple of weeks ago. It was in a mustard shallot sauce. The meat melted off the bone. Not sure if it's still on the menu.

      I just had a rabbit dish at Amada last week and it was very good. It was rabbit two-ways: medallions and rabbit ravioli.

        Rabbit cacciatore-style and sometimes pasta with rabbit ragu. Really good! That's in response to bashful3 on Paradiso.

          Spring Mill Cafe is a little French byob near Conshohoken that serves rabbit. I've always enjoyed their food.

            I second Paradiso. They do it cacciatore-style with a fantastic Mascarpone polenta.

              Ava serves pappardelle pasta with a rabbit ragu. One of the best pasta dishes I have had in the city hands down.

                Vetri sometimes offers rabbit.You could call and find out. Be prepared to spend $$$$ (if you can afford it) for some of the most splendid food you will ever have the pleasure to eat!!!

                  A question for you roscoet: are they serving rabbit in some kind of sauce as a main dish at Paradiso, or do they also have pasta sauce made with hare? That's one of my favorite dishes in Italy, but I wasn't as charmed by rabbit as an entree as I thought I would be.

                  Can you describe the rabbit dishes you have eaten there?
