Chef-owner Vaughn Good and his partner, co-owner Kristine Hull, have transformed the space that now houses their restaurant, Fox and Pearl, with the help of chef de cuisine Isaac Hendry.
The menu offers classic dishes that blend contemporary with comforting: For a flavorful and artful main, try the grilled Missouri trout with farro verde, pickled lime butter and grilled radish paired with a glass of Caparone Nebbiolo from Paso Robles, California, as suggested by general manager and sommelier Richard Garcia.
For a heartier meal, opt for the smoked and pan-seared pork terrine with green strawberry honey and a buttermilk biscuit. Be sure to order a cocktail from the list developed by bartender Katy Wade, such as the So Fresca, So Clean, featuring mezcal, Caperitif, green strawberry honey and lime.
