400 Rabbits

Gastro Pub, Interior MexicanSouth$10-$25 First Plates 

This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.
