A Peek Inside Rabbit, Set To Open July 28 In Clarendon

[Photos: Amy McKeever/Eater.com]

What you see in the pictures above is the home stretch of Clarendon Boulevard's forthcoming Rabbit, the fast-casual salad restaurant from the owners of Tangysweet and Red Velvet Cupcakery. They've got the reclaimed wooden tables all set up, the pendant lights are installed from the light wood ceiling and some of the signage went up this afternoon. They're still waiting on upholstery for the banquettes and a mural for that big blank wall that will incorporate the rabbit logo seen on the door. In addition to salads and grilled items from Rabbit, this space is also going to house a new Red Velvet location in what is basically just the far side of the restaurant with its own entrance and register. Rabbit will be open from 11 a.m to 11 p.m., but owner Aaron Gordon says he sees it as more of a dinner-friendly space— and, indeed, it offers three beers and six (as yet undecided) wines. Rabbit officially opens on July 28 with free cupcakes for all from 4 to 8 p.m.
