If you live in the northern suburbs and have been longing for a restaurant that balances Texas flair with a dedication for socially responsible food, look no further than the brand new Foxhole Culinary Tavern. This upscale restaurant serves Texas-inspired American cuisine in a stylish setting. 


We started our meal off with ever popular Brussels sprouts.

Dishes on the menu are prepared mostly with locally sourced ingredients, though their fish is flown in daily. The dinner menu features a few “ponderings” and small plates that are great for sharing. During our trip we started the meal by sharing the Crisped Brussel Sprouts, which include candied pecans and heirloom beets. We also shared a delicious small plate of bacon wrapped Texas Quail, which lies over some red pepper jelly. For a main course, we chose the Texas Lamb Shank, braised in pecan porter and served with boursin smashed potatoes and a medley of vegetables. Like most of the other meat dishes on the menu, the lamb is perfectly seasoned and falls right off the bone. Be prepared for some generous portions on the speciality plates. The menu also features plenty of seafood options including raw oysters. Some other notable items include the Grilled Tenderloin Fillet, Grilled Ribeye, and Lobster Mac & Cheese.

Lunch is also offered with a menu that includes a mix of their small and large dinner plates but adds burgers, sandwiches, and wood-fired flatbreads. On the drink menu you'll find fine wines, a large selection of beer, and a few speciality craft cocktails. Check out their Social Hour from 4-7pm, for specially priced dishes and discounted beverages.

The dimly lit interior is sleekly designed with dark wood grains and a monochromatic color scheme. The main dining room has a number of TV screens mounted on the walls, throwing off any romantic ambiance. With a menu at a higher price point, Foxhole is a great choice for celebratory dinners or a nice evening out with friends. And of course, if you'd like some fine dining while keeping an eye on the game this is your spot.
