15 Fox Place
15 Fox Place isn’t like having dinner in someone’s home—it is having dinner in someone’s home. Though the owners don’t live upstairs anymore, every room in this house on a residential street in Journal Square is still decorated with wedding pictures and family mementos. The food is Italian-American, and while the courses on the $95 set menu change nightly, you can expect a lot of filling family-style dishes. Come hungry (and with your own bottle of wine—it’s BYO), because the six-course meal is hefty.
After around five appetizers of things like polenta arrabbiata and eggplant stuffed with fontinella, there are a couple pastas followed by entrees like chicken roulade, and then desserts. You’ll definitely need a reservation, and you have to make one over the phone. Don’t worry, you can do it.
