Foxyco, a new American restaurant with a focus on coal fire, will move into the Design District later this spring.
The forthcoming restaurant will occupy a 3,000 square foot space inside the old Bridge Bistro building at 921 Riverfront Boulevard, according to D Magazine. For the new spot, the space got a complete midcentury revamp complete with jewel-toned, low-slung couches and chairs in the “den” area.
The dining room, with seating for 80, will be outfitted in a monochromatic palette of grey, black, and white. A six-top chef’s table will give diners a front-row seat to the action in the open kitchen, and a 15-seat bar will highlight the cocktail program headed by Lauren Festa, previously of FT33 and the Mansion.
Stevens’ Stock & Barrel on Davis Street has lent inspiration to Foxyco, and the two will have similar cuisine, although Foxyco, (a moniker playing off Stevens’ nickname for his wife), will have lighter dishes that are “less fried and heavy,” he told D Magazine. “We’re going to do a lot of ember cooking, it’s very fire and coal based with high acidity… we’re going to make our own dumplings and flatbread dough.”
When the restaurant opens in mid-May, it will operate Tuesday through Saturday for dinner service with lunch hours to be added in the future.
