Fox & The Knife
Where we've featured it
Normally we don’t like it when neon signs tell us what to do, as the “Stay Foxy” sign above the bar does at Fox & The Knife. But we don’t mind if it comes with food worth driving for (and since the alternative would’ve been “Stay Knifey,” we’ll take it). Southie should be excited for this Italian place with a small, but heavy-hitting menu. You’ll be in good hands with the harissa braised lamb, or tortellini with parsnips and sweet gorgonzola. It also helps that the small, dark dining room with fox murals on the walls is packed and fun just about every night, and the bar is big enough to grab a last-minute Negroni and a bite to eat with a friend.
You wouldn’t guess that a restaurant called the Fox & The Knife would be Italian, but that’s the case at this spot that just opened near the Broadway T stop in Southie. It’s apparently all homemade pasta, too.
