When Sarah suggested we eat lunch at The Blind Rabbit I was a little skeptical. The sign says “A burger and whiskey bar”. Does that mean they serve rabbit burgers?
She assured me she’d eaten there before and that I’d like the food so I agreed to give it a try. And she was right, despite the name on the sign, rabbit burgers were not on the menu.
Instead both John and I ordered cheeseburgers. Burgers and other sandwiches are served with a sauce and a root or side. A root? Their unique name for potatoes or onions. I choose the Tobacco Onions and John ordered the Hand Cut Chips, and we both choose the same sauce, Creole Mayo.
Sarah ordered The Southern Cuban Sandwich. So what makes a Cuban sandwich southern? A fried green tomato with bourbon spiked Creole mustard. And instead of a root, she ordered a side – Mac ‘n Cheese.
Other interesting choices: Bourbon Whipped Sweet Potatoes, Goat Cheese Grits, and Red Beans and Rice. They even serve milkshakes spiked with Caramel Moonshine or Buffalo Bourbon. No one tried these, and I can’t even imagine a spiked milkshake.
The Blind Rabbit was a good choice and I’m sure we’ll return.
The best thing about going to Jacksonville…visiting Sarah and Daniel; but the restaurants are a close second.
