Rabbit | Chelsea Restaurant
Welcome to Rabbit, Chelsea’s first ‘wild food’ brasserie.
A rustic spot on the King’s Road serving freshly farmed and foraged seasonal British food, it’s technically brought to you by an industrious, multi-talented team of three brothers.
But it’s actually their parents we’d like to thank –
Firstly for Gregory, the grubby one, who handpicks herbs and seeds across West Sussex; rears livestock, like English Deer; and farms sustainable meats, like wood pigeon and rabbit. We’d like to point out that he regularly crawls through long grass whispering “sshhh…be vewy, vewy quiet… I’m hunting wabbits”. But we can’t, because he doesn’t.
Secondly for Oliver, the “ex-Oxo Tower and River Cottage chef” one, who takes those fresh farm ingredients and crafts Rabbit’s daily changing menu of all-natural sharing plates like veal twig with pineapple weed, violet pickled quail’s egg with celery salt and beef cheek bonbons with mustard.
Thirdly for Richard, the practical and creative one, who in addition to managing the restaurant dishes up Oliver’s plates at a little “dishing up” station in the restaurant and, in his spare time, mixes wild herb-infused cocktails.
Fourthly for owning Nutbourne, the family farm and vineyard in West Sussex that supplies Rabbit with its fresh, organic produce and award-winning wine.
And Fifthly for giving us such a wonderful opportunity to dine inside an authentic, rustic and homely farm kitchen.
Without having to leave London.
NOTE: Rabbit is open for dinner Mon-Sat and lunch Tues-Sun. Monday evenings are BYOB with no corkage. You can find out more, and reserve a table, right HERE.
