My spouse took me to Fox's Den for a birthday dinner. It was our first visit to the restaurant under this ownership. Located in the "capital of Hunt Country" the restaurant is below ground under a retail building on the main street. You enter from a parking area on the side of the building. Our entrance into the restaurant was actually not promising for a restaurant of this caliber, as for the cold weather they had us come in through a side entrance that looked as though it was really a kitchen service area. But once we were greeted by the hostess things immediately perked up. The restaurant is very cozy and intimate, in the colonial style with low ceilings. The lighting was candle-type and very flattering to ladies, making it feel right for a special occasion! The dining area is split into several small rooms and there is a small bar. White cloths on the tables and cloth napkins. Food is not inexpensive but everything was very tasty, beginning with a specialty salad with walnuts and gorgonzola ($8) and a butternut squash soup ($9, could have been a touch hotter but tasted lovely). Several wines are available by the glass and there is a full bar. For entrees we had a small filet ($22, but one of the best I've had recently) and a lemon chicken (small serving but excellent flavor). Side dishes included zucchini cooked just right, with au gratin potatoes for me and mashed for the spouse. (We saw other diners enjoying nightly specials including salmon crepes and swordfish as well as a sausage and bean soup). The bread served by the slice with the meal was crusty and warm. Dessert was a dense but very chocolately and not-too-sweet chocolate mousse. Service was relaxed but attentive and professional. (However, our server did not ask if we wanted another drink from the bar or coffee with our dessert. As my spouse says, maybe she figured we'd spent enough.) Overall, an enjoyable and tasty dinner in a very nice intimate atmosphere. Under previous owners one of the tables had a sign saying that Jackie Onassis used to sit at that table. The sign is gone now but that would still be a nice table for an evening out. Note: not really a good restaurant for large groups or claustrophobes.
