Restaurant & Food Photography // Red Rabbit

Swerving just a bit to showcase some work I've done for Eater Twin Cities. I photographed at the newly opened Red Rabbit - St. Paul. I was excited to see the transformation from what used to the be the dark and dingy Wild Onion to a more classy, open dining space. You can see Joy Summers' write up here: https://twincities.eater.com/2018/10/3/17933716/red-rabbit-st-paul-grand-avenue

My favorite parts?

  • The bar - the bar stools had comfort that matched the style. 
  • The tile work - it'll go well for my #RebeccaOnTheMove foot pics
  • Interior lighting - several different kinds of lights to match the individual dining spaces. 
  • Windows - the large windows that face Grand Ave. 
  • Round tables that seat 6. It can be awkward to sit at a rectangle table with a larger group. Someone usually gets left out of the conversation. The large rounds are more inclusive.
  • The side patio + fireplace. I'll need to come back and visit for the whole experience. 

Food - While I was originally sent by Eater Twin Cities to photograph the interior space/new design and 1-2 plates of food - the chefs sent out many more plates for me to photograph. I tried to keep up with the pace of the kitchen to capture each dish and found I was able to move around the restaurant to all the different spaces to shoot. While I was on a little time crunch before my next shoot, Ian and Chef Todd sent me out with a few plates: Raviolo (house burrata, pickled rhubarb, pine nuts, parm, poppy seed ravioli) and a Spicy Salmi Pizza. I would absolutely order these items again. I'm hoping to get back there in January for a nice meal out.
