Moon Rabbit DC

Located in DC at The Wharf, Moon Rabbit is a modern Vietnamese restaurant by Kevin Tien. This has become a go to spot for me, I’ll happily except invites. Attached to the InterContinental making it convenient for travelers and you don’t need a reservation to sit at the bar.
I want to be clear that The Wharf is a gentrified area. Moon Rabbit thankfully is a hit in the area, well priced and always delicious. I have always received excellent service and they’re very attentive/accommodating to food allergies. One of the best things about the food is that they use seasonal produce and fresh fish so can order the same dish with potentially a new spin.
The atmosphere is very welcoming. I haven’t had a chance to sit outside with the heat we’ve been having but the bar, general seating and the private groups section have all been great. The platting is fantastic and they have great new chopsticks. They even bring out sorbet as a treat for birthdays.
There are a good amount of options on each menu breakfast, lunch and dinner. The only downfall is a change on the dinner menu. A good amount of groups come to eat here and so it was decided to have a portion of the menu be sharing sizes rather than having a group menu available for request. Per food restrictions I’m typically unable to share but I’m also unable to get a single sized portion and I missed out on the branzino while it was single serve. I will say every time I get salmon it’s divine, you definitely won’t go wrong eating here.
Let me know how you enjoy it.
