Black Rabbit Restaurant Review: Every part of Edgefield has its charms. The re-purposed 74-acre estate (formerly a poorhouse, circa 1911) features a multitude of attractions ranging from a concert venue to a hotel, and a casual brewpub amidst lovely gardens. But for an elegant dining experience, Black Rabbit is the ideal choice. Its rustic dining room blends early American and turn-of-the-century touches with contemporary flair. The kitchen uses seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs from Edgefield's organic gardens. Dinner choices may range from a green bean and mushroom salad with truffle vinaigrette to cauliflower saffron flan to slow-cooked wild boar with chestnut purée. For breakfast or brunch, try the breakfast sandwich: a croissant filled with scrambled eggs, ham, avocado and Gruyère, or the house-smoked salmon hash. The estate boasts its own coffee roaster, distillery and winery --- go for the Pinot Gris or Cabernet --- and, of course, its best-known product, house-brewed beers.
