Foxy Loxy Does It Right

The latest addition to the bountiful array of good eats available in the Thomas Square neighborhood is Foxy Loxy. It’s a café/art gallery in the old Pizza Rustica location on Bull St.  The folks at the recent monthly meeting of Green Drinks were treated to what several say was the best cocktail buffet they’ve ever had, and the group has, over the years, met at virtually every possible downtown area location. This time they were treated to a variety of nibbles, including slow roasted pulled pork with apple chutney, Chipotle-Pimento cheese pinwheels, tomatillo and orange salsa with chips, chocolate pepita shortbread, and a cheese and grape platter. Since then, I’ve heard raves about their coffees (all from PERC), their sandwiches, and especially their quiche of jeuvos rancheros.  The menu changes daily, but it tends to have a Mexic ana flavor, plus in-house made desserts that draw raves. The wine and craft beer list is impressive. Open Monday through Saturday, the gallery has a frequently changing array of  etchings, prints, lithos and woodcuts by local artists. More info: 401-0543.

Sugar Daddy’s is sweetly promising

The recently opened Sugar Daddy’s Wine and Food Bar is the latest eatery to join the popular “small plate” trend in the downtown area.  On Jefferson, right off Broughton, the location couldn’t be better. With an extensive wine and beer list, plus a full bar and good food, this place should be a hit. Two of us have sampled on a couple of occasions. Naturally, we tried the ubiquitous Duck Confit Panini, moist, tender and aromatic with garlic and thyme, just as it should be. On another occasion, one of us tried to salmon salad–fresh greens, highlighted with red grapefruit segments and other delicacies. The Local Jumbo Shrimp was good, too, although I think the term Jumbo might be subject to conjecture. The shrimp rested atop a bed of fresh off the cob, nicely seasoned corn. The corn was lovely, but it was hard to see why the chef chose to be so stingy with its quantity when corn is among the least expensive of veggies. Desserts provide sweet decadence.
