Iron Rabbit in West Olympia is like your favorite present wrapped in a brown paper bag: The exterior is plain to say the least; the interior is cozy with a cool open kitchen that could almost pass for a diner - if it weren't so nicely appointed. It's casual comfort for sure with fabulous service. But hey, it's all about balance, and the menu has an abundance of character and intriguing finds. The Iron Rabbit need not dazzle with the ambiance.

Serving locally sourced, gastropub cuisine in a family-friendly establishment, Iron Rabbit scores big points across the board with fun appetizers, flavorful salads and impressive burgers - all of which often feature intriguing ingredients.

What do I recommend?

The Lamb Burger.

It's rare to find a lamb burger outside a Mediterranean-focused establishment - save for a "chop." The hand-forged patty is cooked to a perfect temp, topped with fresh organic spring greens, sliced tomato, crispy onion straws and tzatziki sauce with a delicious tender bread hug by a brioche bun. For those unaware, tzatziki is a goat milk yogurt based dip with flavors of garlic and cucumber that you often find in gyros. The goat milk base gives the burger nice sharp tart-y notes throughout complementing the lamb. For sides, you can opt for apples, slaw or fries. Their fries are real potatoes similar to jojos in presentation but only lightly seasoned giving them a golden crisp interior.

Added bonus: the Iron Rabbit's bar selection is a collection of unique spirits, fabulous craft brews and wine menu featuring well crafted and fun concoctions on all fronts from regional sources and beyond.

IRON RABBIT, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday,2103 Harrison Ave. NW, Olympia, 360.956.3661
