Ana, who had once worked with the Wild Rabbit in its original location on Main Street, became the proprietor in December 2010 and opened her business in January 2011. "Being available, I didn’t want to see it close; I bought it. I was nervous but had once owned my own photography business so had a little business experience."
After four months of running her own restaurant, Ana is still very enthusiastic. "I have a wonderful cook, but if necessary, I can get in there and cook. I try to stay focused on the business end of what has to be done. I do cook at home for the children. My oldest daughter is 12 and I have a twin girl and boy age 10. They are getting to where they can help out a little, although sometimes I think they get uninterested in it."
The Wild Rabbit is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday through Thursday 9-7 and Friday and Saturday 9-9, with live music and open mike on Saturday nights. "We have about 10 employees who are all great. We have wine and beer and we are trying to cater to a wide range of clientele. The people have been very supportive. We found Gloucester while vacationing in Williamsburg and it’s the wonderful people here who make it so nice."
