The Smoking Rabbit- South Beach

Finally made it over to The Smoking Rabbit, the new gastropub over on 5th and Ocean for lunch. I was concerned when I walked in because the place was empty. No lie, an empty restaurant on Ocean Drive during season. Hard to accomplish. Unfortunately, they didn't have a separate lunch menu and most of the dishes were in the $24 plus range which is too much for lunch. They did have a club sandwich and a burger for $13 & $14 but I didn't go there looking for that. I decided to start with something traditional and opted for the Bangers & Mash. The bangers (sausage) portion was ok, nothing special. Mash was mediocre. Heard the chef came over from Gables Diner. Never been so I don't know if that is a plus or a minus, just reporting. Menu wasn't interesting enough to get me to rush back. Has anyone else been? Curious to hear some other reports/opinions. Anyone brave enough to try the rabbit?
