  • ” The Red Rabbit’s communal vibe of course extends to its sourcing practices, which favour area producers like Church Hill Farm and Soiled Reputation, and the menu itself”

  • “Strike the image of white tablecloths and replace it with red rabbits. White tablecloths represent the old guard of fine dining restaurants. Red rabbits represent the new guard of down-to-earth, community-minded restaurants in a theatre/agricultural town of 33,000.”

    The Toronto Star
  • “For the discerning eater, this summer in Stratford will be different. Mercer Hall as I know it is gone. Sad. The chefs you fell in love with are gone. The front of house who knew your name and made you feel hugged in are gone. Tragic.”
