Do Tell: Animal-Inspired Restaurants and Bars Near You?

It's no secret that I've got pets on my mind 24/7 . . . and friends love to pass along any animal information to me. It's rare to hear something I've never covered or even thought about but such is the case here.
After having an enjoyable evening at NYC's Red Cat, caligirlnyc suggested a post about bars and restaurants named after animals . . . and to have readers post about ones in their towns, too. Quick brainstorming brought to mind places like Mad Dog in the Fog here in SF or Fat Black Pussycat in NYC, just to name the first two to come to mind. Now I want to hear from you – please share your own local establishments with names including dogs or cats in the comments below!

There's a Black Dog Coffeehouse in Lenexa, KS, not far from me. We have a Mexican restaurant called La Cocina Del Puerco that makes me laugh because it means "kitchen of the pig"

Yeah there's a Pig 'n' Whistle in LA. We also have a Senor Fish but I think that's mostly 'cause they make fish. I'm sure there's more but I'm not very hip (lol) so I don't know about them.

In college, I worked at a bar called The Albatross, or The 'Tross for short. (The abreviated version came in handy if you were hammered.)
