Hey, I’m surprised no one has mentioned the STRANGE and (I think) HILARIOUS letter in Citybeat that pretty much accuses El Take It Easy of bunny hating.
Apparently, the San Diego House Rabbit Society has a big beef about El Take It Easy offering delicious rabbit for dinner. They want folks to boycott the place.
Here's a link to the letter (scroll down a bit):
Seriously, though. I'm a huge fan of rabbit -- especially the wood-grilled, rosemary infused kind in Italian restaurants. The rabbit was one of the dishes that attracted me to El Take It Easy. I loved their rabbit taquitos and I think the rabbit cazuela (not always offered) is one of the best dishes I've ever had. Of course, I enjoyed my rabbit with a crisp, cold pint of hops (sorry, couldn't resist). More power to El Take It Easy! No boycott for me.
