    The only place that I have had rabbit is at Cold Springs Tavern where they would saute medallions in a sauce of wild mushrooms, garlic and brandy. I have not seen roast rabbit in any menus in any of my travels since the delicate flavor pairs well with moist cooking such as in Bohemian hasenpeffer dishes.

      As a matter of fact, there's this quaint little place by the beach, with comfortable outdoor seating. I can't recall the name, or the street at the moment... but you will know it when you see it. Be prepared to have the culinary experience of your life. As for the rabbit, it's the best you'll find anywhere.

        Forgive me, but this reply is more or less useless, though the sentiment is appreciated. "You'll know it when you see it"? I actually can't imagine what you might be referring to at all.

        In any case, I don't have any recommendations from personal experience, but you may want to call Bouchon, Square One, Sage & Onion, or Petit Valentien, which are the most likely to ever have braised rabbit as a special or on one of their changing, seasonal menus.

        Try Cafe Mimosa, a French bistro on Dela Vina and Alamar in midtown.
