15 Fox Place isn’t like having dinner in someone’s home - it is having dinner in someone’s home. Well, the owners don’t live upstairs anymore - but every room in this house on a residential street in Journal Square is still decorated with wedding pictures and family mementos. The food is Italian-American, and while the courses on the $95 set menu change nightly, you can expect a lot of filling, family-style dishes. After around five appetizers of things like polenta arrabbiata and eggplant stuffed with fontinella, there are a couple pastas followed by entrees like chicken roulade, and then desserts. It wouldn’t be worth $95 if it were served in a typical restaurant, but the BYO policy and unusual space make it a fun option for unique dates or group dinners.
