Fox and Hound's cooks dash their menu of classic steak, seafood, and chicken dishes with contemporary twists. The har-grilled 14-ounce new york strip steak basks in house-made steak sauce ($23); comfortingly familiar flavors blend with marine zing in the lobster mac 'n' cheese ($21) or the thick-cut swordfish steak ($19). Diners can heed the instructions implicit in the buttermilk-fried Fork & Knife fried chicken, or use the side of country gravy to float fluffy poultry pieces directly into mouths ($14). Groups can pull out cushy chairs amid the dining room's exposed brick walls or shuffle into the tavern to furtively mark their height against the floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace.
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.
