This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - 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.

9 of us decided to do an impromptu Saturday night dinner, thought it would be impossible but looked on Open Table for a place that could fit us for a last minute reservation and we ended up at A Casa Fox. We were very happy with the whole experience. We shared a bunch of tapas and got a couple of main dishes for the group which were perfect for a lighter bite before heading out on a Saturday night!

Food was okay. Came here with friends for a birthday. Our waitress was very pushy about ordering more dishes and running up the bill. She kept trying to push her own opinion of how we should order on us without really listening to the fact that some of our group were vegetarians and therefore we didn't want an all meat menu. Additionally she kept pushing all of the more expensive items and attempting to refill drinks when we hadn't asked for additional ones. In the end, people were a bit surprised by the bill given the quantity/quality of the food. Luckily, one member of our group was willing to wrangle the waitress to order what we wanted versus her tasting menu option. If my friend hadn't stepped in and repeatedly corrected the waitress as we ordered, I fear what the end bill would have actually been.

Top notch service meets sensational food, a casa fox is a very refreshing and cozy place to eat and drink.

Adorable space. Cozy and warm and inviting. Food was somewhat disappointing...for $24 I ordered the seafood clay pot and there was maybe a cup of rice, 5 mussels, a pinch of calamari and maybe 5 shrimp. I was still hungry after I finished eating. Maybe there are better things on the menu?

Very cozy, inviting atmosphere and excellent service. I thought the food and especially drinks were a bit over-priced for what they were, but both were - well not spectacular - tasty and promptly-served.
