Essential Information

2718 J St.
Sacramento, CA 95816

This farm-to-table bistro has been hopping since it opened in 2012, occupying a space that had been unlucky for other restaurants, including the erstwhile GV Hurley’s and Red Lotus. Red Rabbit (yes, the name was inspired by the giant sculpture hanging in the B Terminal at SMF) invites diners to tumble down the bunny hole and lose themselves in cushy black booths, dim lighting and expertly crafted cocktails, and a menu of moderately priced fare created by John Bays, an alum of Mulvaney’s. The understated atmosphere is equally well suited to a dinner date or a drop-in for snacks and libations. Don’t miss the ever-changing punch of the day or drinks like the Krakow Salt Mine (which combines vodka, apple cider, lemon, ginger beer and salt); to eat, you’ll want to sink your teeth into the pork osso bucco with polenta and green beans or the achiote chicken with micro cilantro and coconut-turmeric rice.
