Entrepreneurs Shuai and Corrie Wang are on the precipice of opening their first brick-and-mortar restaurant Jackrabbit Filly at 4628 Spruill Avenue. After years running cult-favorite food truck Short Grain, the couple has plenty of fans ready for them to begin regular service.
Inspired by his mother and grandmother, 2016 Eater Young Gun winner Shuai put together a menu of Chinese-American dishes and Japanese raw bar items for Jackrabbit Filly. The name is derived from Corrie and Shuai’s Chinese Zodiac signs.
The couple settled on the address in January and have spent these past few months renovating the space. There are nods to family on the walls, jackrabbit sculptures, playful bunny wallpaper behind a spacious booth, and pops of color everywhere.
Take a peek at the space here with photographer Mike Ledford. Jackrabbit Filly should be open any day now — there’s already been a friends and family event, and almost all the necessary permits are in place. Keep an eye out for an announcement soon.
