Fox and the Knife coming to Southie!

What’s this?  Yet another restaurant coming to our neighborhood!  While researching new and exciting things to report on Caught in Southie, we stumbled upon this gem in Food & Wine.  James Beard Award Winner for Best Chef: Northeast, Karen Akunowicz announced she’s leaving Myers + Chang to start her own restaurant in Southie! 

The 75-seat restaurant will be “an Italian-inspired neighborhood enoteca that is just a warm, welcoming neighborhood joint.”

Fox and the Knife will take over the old Maiden spot!  

It’s slated to open in November.

    • Ummm…. Not many restaurants have parking bc, they are in the city where people can walk or take a bus . Also, these so called yuppie restaurants create JOBS .Why you hating on a talented chef who’s worked hard on their career and opening they’re own restaurant.???

    • This comment is laughable, Amrheins needs to be bulldozed immediatelyand built into a massive multifamily building with a new amrheins in the ground floor.

    • Paula, this is a city. You don’t need parking for a small restaurant in South Boston. This isn’t Chili’s in Burlington.

  1. I hate Southie now. Forced out of my 1800 month apartment after 8 years for 2800 new tenants. Southie is a yuppie craphole

  2. Kinda sick of the Southie restaurants I think we’re more than good. There’s a great investment and an art that could be done prettying up some of the neighborhoods behind Southie. GO build up Eastie, or Fields CORONER!

    • As long as there are 50+ person lines waiting to get into establishments I don’t think we’re “good”.

  3. Whatever they do, open before 4 pm please. Betty’s needs to figure it out.

  4. This is great addition, i’d like to see some more fast casual options i.e. greek like Saloniki, mexican like Annas, higher quality chinese/thai/viatmanese ethnic foods – i.e. there’s too many mediocre pizza places.

    • Agreed. Apparently Broadway retail is extremely expensive relative to what it is, and is why you don’t see the likes of those fast casuals that everyone wants. Would love to see a Sabrosa/Zo somewhere on Broadway, they would kill it.

  5. I agree with Jay Smith: an Anna’sTaqueria, a Pho place, Thai and Greek/middle eastern, and a burger joint to replace Tasty Burger (when I need a hit of red meat): all are needed as take out with small sitting areas. And reasonable prices unless their rent’s too high. Ethiopian would be cool as well.
