A word from a casa fox
a casa fox specializes in authentic Latin American cuisine inspired by Chef Melissa Fox's Nicaraguan mother. The food is served in a rustic setting in Manhattan's trendy Lower East Side with a crackling fire place and decorated throughout with family keepsakes.

Dishes range from tapas-style starters - empanadas and beef chimichurri skewers - as well as larger main dishes like braised short ribs with rice, beans and fried plantain chips.

Ask for a box of empanadas to go, store them in the freezer, then re-heat them for your next house party. Or ask us to cater your next special event, either at your place or at a casa fox, where we can accommodate up to 45 for dinner or 60 for cocktails.

Diner Reviews
  • "As a pescetarian, I am so in love with the mushroom empanada, mojito shrimp, garlic shrimp, seafood cazuela, and when they have it, the fish special with rice and encordito salad. Very special and authentic place. Drinks are excellent, and the vibe is relaxed and fun. Highly recommend particularly for a date or night out with friends."

  • "I would only go there for food. The sangria was like drinking fruit punch which was extremely disappointing for a spanish tapas restaurant. The wine by the glass was also not that special. On the other hand, the pork tacos were amazing and don't leave without ordering the RISOTTO CROQUETTES!!! They are heaven in your mouth!"

  • "Nice place to have a drink and chat. Avoid eating food here unless you love awful flavors, bad seasoning, lots of grease,"

  • "If you are looking for good tapas, than I would look elsewhere. Very overpriced for small portion plates. I am a foodie, and would never go back!"

  • "A greate restaurant. Came here for valentines day with my wife and we both enjoyed it. The food was delicious. I am allergic to shrimp but the shrimp appetizer that was on the prix fix menu was so tempting I had to take a a little bite and I did. It was delicious. The rest of the dinner was just as great. The empanadas are off the hook, and the ceviche is too die for. I had the braised problem ribs and I was thoroughly satisfied. Drinks were on the strong side but is that really a complaint? Totally recommend. Place is small. Had trouble squeezing between tables to get to the bathroom but I made it. I am a normal build man. It has a nice fire place which adds to ambience. Met the chef you was very personable. Great experience."

  • "small place, with a great ambiance (loved the fireplace!). The empanadas were the best ever! Rest of the food...some of it we loved, some was nice. Just nice as a change, as the menu is so different."

  • "I went here for mine and my friend's birthday dinner. They were super accommodating since our group size kept changing. There were so many delicious drinks to keep us waiting for our friends and lots of great empanadas to keep us busy. I definitely recommend the dish in the clay pot! Great for a big group (but be sure to make a reservation because the space itself is small)."

  • "Despite many good reviews this place is terrible. Food was embarrassingly bad, service inattentive at best. Has the feel of a restaurant going out of business. There was no one there on a Thursday night at 9pm (that should have been warning enough). The server was half asleep and made us feel like we were distracting him from a nap. There was one guy in the kitchen and the food tasted a day old and reheated. Everything was sub-par."

  • "First of all, the restaurant has tons of rustic charm, and the fireplace puts it over the top. Beyond that, though, the tapas menu makes it worth stopping in, and my wife and I will be back for more. I've had a lot of meat on skewers in my life, and rarely do they delight me. Usually fine, but not exciting. With that in mind, dear lord, do not miss the beef skewers. Do. Not. Miss. Mini empanadas were pretty good too. Good beef short ribs, also. Oh, and check out their house picante sauce."

  • "A Casa Fox was such a cute, cozy, delicious and fun experience. I booked a 9 person reservation for a Thursday night the night before and there were no problems. Though a tad pricey, the overall experience was great- the food, drinks, atmosphere and wait staff. "The Fox" cocktail is a MUST HAVE."
