(Closed) Jack Rabbit

There's a new restaurant with western concept recently opened at Rasuna Said. Me and hubby went there for dinner on Sunday night. It was located in an office building, and we were confused when we hit the basement parking lot as it was very dark and empty, not more than 10 cars. We took the lift to office lobby and the security told us that Jack Rabbit was outside the building, so we walked there and turned out it had valet! Sigh... If we know, we can just park valet rather than park in that creepy parking lot plus I had to walk in heels.

As we walked in, I saw the bar is at the right side and we were guided to the dining place. They have outdoor spot too. I was quite amazed with the design, they had this private room hanging down the ceiling. The waiter told us they had 2 private rooms but can be opened into one with max 24 persons (for lunch, minimum spending is IDR 2.5 million, for dinner 3.5 million).

They didn't had too many selections on the menu. We chose pork belly (90k) for the appetizer. For the main course, we ordered Pan Seared Duck (130k) and Butter Poached Norwegian Salmon (150k). After we ordered, we were given complimentary bread for starters before the appetizers came. The pork was not good, so slimmy and fatty. :(

I liked the duck, it was very tender, it served with risotto and shimeji mushroom. More or less, like the one at Canteen. Yumm!
My salmon is so so, it came with potato gratine (love it!) and they put a little bit of melted avocado and three small cubes of jelly as decoration on the plate.

Overall, it was a good dine. The waiter also very attentive. It was not a fine dining restaurant, but it was a type of place where you need to dress up a bit.
