On a crowded stretch of Division, Clever Rabbit pulls away from the pack thanks to its inventive menu and rustic-chic space, featuring a marble-topped bar, whitewashed brick walls and modern lighting. The professional staff is well versed on the vegetable-forward menu, so heed their counsel and begin with the mushroom and polenta terrine with walnuts and a pumpkin marmalade. Then dive into carrot dumplings or the pig ear (shaped) pasta with braised broccoli rabe and ricotta. Finesse and flavor reign in such items as the North African chicken seasoned with ras el hanout or tuna with compressed cucumber and puffed wild rice.
Go ahead and dangle that carrot cake. This triple-layer treat with a cream cheese filling and olive oil "jam" is the ultimate reward.- Gli ispettori della guida MICHELIN
