Went with my friend Michael S. to Jacques-Imo’s in NYC at 77th and Columbus last night. I have been there several times, hoping to have the rabbit that they prepare so well in their New Orleans restaurant.
I called on Monday night and left a message. I received a call back from Lana on Tuesday and she indicated they did not have the rabbit on the menu in NYC. Apparently NY patrons don’t know a good thing when they have the chance. Anyway, she agreed that if I could secure a rabbit, she would have the chef prepare it for me and my friend.
Well I did get a rabbit from Citarella at 2135 Broadway. Sure enough, corn biscuits along with a bowl of gumbo (with hot sauce), a plate of fried green tomatoes with Shrimp Remoulade, a platter of homemade fried chicken (takes 25 minutes – they are NOT KFC), and sides of jambalaya and red beans & rice, we had the rabbit – breaded and fried, served on a Oyster Tasso Pasta.
A fun and eclectic place to go.
