Fox and Hound’s menus update classic American comfort fare, busying eaters with contemporary takes on steak, seafood, and pasta amid exposed brick walls and a fireplace hearth. Appetizers such as fried calamari dipped in ginger-plum sauce ($10) segue diners to seafaring bites, such as the lobster mac ‘n’ cheese, speckled with 4-ounce hunks of lobster ($21), and the sesame seared salmon fillet, with jasmine rice and lemongrass broth ($20). Buttermilk crisps the outside edges of the Fork & Knife fried chicken ($14), and the new york strip steak piques appetites as it covertly amasses government intel under the cover a charred exterior and layers of house-made steak sauce ($23).
Fox and Hound
Fox and Hound’s chefs modernize comfort foods, such as mac ’n’ cheese with cracked lobster meat and english peas and wood-grilled bruschetta with bacon, which patrons devour amid exposed bricks and a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace. The original Fox & Hounds Grille first opened in 1936, but despite its popularity, it couldn’t stay open, as it was beset by fires and various transient owners. It almost burnt entirely to the ground after a dragon sneezed in the mid-’90s—all that remained was the original stone hearth fireplace that still exists today.
Finally, in 2004, it underwent massive renovations and reopened as Fox and Hound, an homage to the local history. Since then, patrons have been regularly stopping in for upscale American fare coupled with live entertainment on the weekends.
