Foxy: Griffintown’s newest culinary addition

It has only been a week since Foxy opened and I’m already in love with this place. First, because it is a new addition to Grffintown’s culinary experience (located on Notre-Dame, just West of Guy), but also because I love Olive + Gourmando… So, Dyan Solomon and Eric Girard, co-owners and co-founders of O+G in Old Montreal, finally opened a new restaurant with an innovative concept. The restaurant is named Foxy after Solomon’s dog, but also reminds the woods, which is at the heart of the concept. At Foxy, everything is fire-based, so the whole menu is cooked on fire, which gives a new twist to the place.

The menu is diverse, with lots of veggies. We started by sharing 2 “first bites”: the feta on wooden-fire with tomatoes, grapes and almonds, and the cod with chili cucumbers mixed with peanuts and a fresh cream. Then we shared a flatbread (Anson Mills Floor) with artichokes marinated in dill, with goat cheese and garlic. We continued with the BBQ chicken in a romanesco sauce with a side of sweet potatoes in a spicy mayo. Everything we tasted was excellent and everyone around us seemed also pleased with their choices.

Not surprising that it was delicious, with Chef Leigh Roper from Joe Beef and Vin Papillon! The baker Marc-André Cyr and cook Vanessa Laberge are also worth mentioning. We also heard that Foxy might start doing the weekend brunch in upcoming months… The decor is very unique with a wooden atmosphere. First bites and flatbreads are between 7 and 15$, while sides are 6$ and main dishes on wood & charcoal are between 21 and 24$. The wine selection is also interesting…

A new place worth trying!
