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. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />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.
