Last Updated: May 2023

Current Status: On May 22, 2023 it was abruptly announced that Moon Rabbit would close immediately.  According to the Post, the closure was related to a union drive by the staff that the hotel-owner opposed. According to a source in the story, “Tien will keep the intellectual property around Moon Rabbit, including the name and his recipes.”  We look forward to his quick return at a new location.
