Foxhole Culinary Tavern

🍠🍠🍠img_5839The Foxhole, as we like to call it, is a neighborhood tavern that has nothing officially vegan on the menu.  Luckily Larry frequents the place often and felt comfortable asking the staff if they could accommodate me.  I was so happy he asked because they were happy to oblige.  They created a pasta primavera (pictured above) that tasted amazing.  It has a sauce that they assured me is vegan – they knew about the dairy and eggs.  This particular version had green beans, sundried tomatoes, mushrooms and asparagus.  I ate the whole thing with a lovely pinot noir.  I gave this 3 rutabagas because I truly enjoyed the meal and will return; however I wish this was an offering on their regular menu and also it would be lovely if they actually had a vegan protein of sorts to round out the dish.  That said vegans, I still recommend it.

img_0939I’ve frequented the Foxhole for a little over a year now.  It’s a quality restaurant with a great wait staff and creative dishes on the menu.  Their bar is a quality one with a good beer and bourbon selection. While I have had a stellar steak and a fantastic burger at Foxhole, my favorite dish on the menu is the Venison Chili.  It’s a seasonal item and was recently brought back for the Fall menu.  When I saw it was an option on Friday night, I leaped at the chance to enjoy it again.  I wasn’t disappointed!  It was as tasty as ever, if not a tad too spicy for my liking.  That said, I highly recommend giving it a try.

While the food at Foxhole is quality and rarely disappoints, there is something more to the dining experience that Kellie and I enjoyed.  When we explained to the wait staff that Kellie is a Vegan, they quickly referenced the items on the menu that, with some modification, would meet her dining needs.  More importantly, they also offered to have the chef prepare a special “off menu selection” if nothing represented on the menu was piquing her interest.  They did so without any condescension or aggravation.  And Kellie’s meal was quite tasty.  She even let me try it since I was paying.

As this blog is about more than merely the taste of the food, the experience that Kellie and I enjoyed was also more than simply a good meal.   The quality food, attentive wait staff and welcoming atmosphere earns a total of 4 happy cows from this carnivore.
