At long last, new life at the Uptown space formerly home to love-it-or-hate-it nightlife spot Sfuzzi. After many months of renovations, Fat Rabbit "is currently in soft opening mode with cocktails" only starting today, reports CultureMap Dallas; expect a "Euro-American tavern" with a "gastropub-ish" menu.
According to Fat Rabbit's website, they'll begin serving "a limited menu" on January 19. As far as food goes, expect a varied menu with globe-trotting influences: Think unusual sliders (chicken shawarma with tahini yogurt, falafel, barbecue pork belly, or beef banh mi with Japanese mayo), a buffalo chicken flatbread with blue cheese and celery, a pickled beet and ricotta salad, mole chicken enchiladas, green papaya slaw, and a selection of "bar bites" including grilled bread with bacon jam and kung pao shrimp. (As for the cocktail selection, scope out the menu below.)
When it fully launches, Fat Rabbit will be open daily for lunch and dinner with food served till 1 a.m., plus brunch service on the weekends.
As for the displaced Sfuzzi: It recently relaunched at the Gables Villa Rosa complex on Cedar Springs (formerly home to NAAN Sushi) with a menu of pizzas, housemade pastas, fancy seafood towers, and steaks. The nightlife portion is now referred to as The Grotto Bar.
