"It’s also indicative of the whole Red Rabbit experience, which gift-wraps cooking acumen in a populist package. As he’s already demonstrated with his growing Red Cow operation, owner Luke Shimp has an uncanny grasp of mainstream tastes ... he enlisted chef Todd Macdonald — a Minneapolis native with invaluable experience in some serious New York City and Boston kitchens — to tap his Italian cooking background."

The Hottest Restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Paul Right Now, April 2017

"Luke Shimp knows how to read a neighborhood, he's proven that with his successful string of Red Cow restaurants. Now, along with chef Todd MacDonald, there's a new eatery that slides right into the North Loop neighborhood in a converted auto shop. The food centers around pizza and dishes cooked in the fire-fueled oven. The cocktail list is actually a book and barman Ian Lowther spins new favorites out of classic cocktails."

Craft Cocktail: the Aviation at Red Rabbit, The Growler

"Ian Lowther makes a killer aviation at the new Red Rabbit on Washington Avenue. He made your Kind-of-a-Big-Deal award-winning cocktail in 2016 (the MosCow Mule) and now he’s compiled a hard bound volume of classics at Red Rabbit. His aviation is balanced, and the nuanced floral notes of Tempus Fugit are like a burst of spring on a dreary February."

Table Talk, Star Tribune by Rick Nelson

"The 50-seat bar’s decor best demonstrates the structure’s early 20th-century roots, with an original yellow brick wall and a restored bead board-and-beam ceiling. The zinc-topped bar is the domain of beverage director Ian Lowther and his ambitious cocktail program. Sommelier Jason Kallsen oversees a program of 42 wines by the glass (including four sparkling options; one is an unfiltered prosecco), all maintained by a cutting-edge, nitrogen gas-fueled preservation system."
