BIG decision for us as The Rabbit In The Moon prepares to resurrect itself from Thursday, March 29 – which image shall we use from the dazzling portfolio of dishes and interiors?
Ultimately the stunning Fillet of Beef with Salt and Pepper Prawn won out over the Spaceman inspecting the twinkling Riedels (below). If it tastes as good as it looks it will live up to chef Michael O’Hare’s pledge of “a new, more visually and technically impressive, ingredient-led menu.”
O’Hare (below) has taken over the reins of what has always seemed a secondary project behind his Michelin-starred Man Behind The Curtain in Leeds. In the past the Space age inspired Asian foods drew mixed reviews.
So no pressure there then on the likes of (pictured below): Langoustine Toast, Soy and Ginger Glazed Pork Cheek, Unagi Bao, Native Lobster with thai flavours and Fillet of Beef with Salt and Pepper Prawn. Sweet servings include White Chocolate Passionfruit and Peppercorn Éclair. With some unusual wines from England, China and Japan to be paired with them. The mysterious interior also looks to have upped its game after a refurb. Just enjoy the images below.
