If you are in the mood for a scenic drive, filling meal
and cozy, rustic atmosphere, the Lord Fox restaurant is for
The 2i mile drive out Plymouth Road from North Cam-
pus is especially beautiful in the fall. Indoors, the atmosphere
is a mixture of a fisherman's wharf and a warm country
home. Tables are covered with genuine leather and lobster
traps hang from the rafters.
On weekends, all three levels of the restaurant are packed.
Because the Lord Fox does not take reservations you may
be directed to the pine-panelled basement lounge for cock-
tails, while waiting to be seated for dinner. If you are luc1y,
as we were, you may view the owner's wine cellar,:with its
vintage Bourdeaux, Beaujolais and Moselles. The Lord Fox
offers one of the most extensive and attractive wine lists in
Once you are seated, you'll forgive the wait. The menu's
fare ranges from chicken and beef to seafood. Appetizers
and desserts are a la carte; however, the main course in-
cludes vegetable or potato, bread and a "tote your own"
salad bar. The salad bar features home-made dressings and'
several unusual offerings including pickled beets and mace-
roni salad. The entrees include a large number of seafood
items. The Fisherman's Platter is a must for any fish lover.
It consists of a lobster tail, frog legs, scallops, oysters,
clams and shrimps. For the meat-eater, there are many
choice cuts of steak to choose from. The El Zorro steak,
served with an authentic Spanish cleaver is a specialty, as
well as the Prime Rib. "Farm Fried Chicken" is& also a
Appetizers range from the exotic caviar and champagne,
Oysters Rockefeller and Escargot to a hearty clam chowder
and French Onion Soup. If you have room, the dessert selec-
tion is incredible. Homemade pies, among them a perfect
pecan confection, Casatta cake laced with liqueur, peach
melba, cannolis and cheese and fruit are just a few. Unusual
coffees and teas are served to complement your meal.
If you want excellent food in a congenial atmosphere, the
Lord Fox is the place to go. Prices are competitive with
other fine dining establishments but you need not dress-up
to be comfortable. Owner Ray Coppa believes in pleasing the
customer and does so with homecooked disles that look
as good as they taste. His attention to detail reflects in the
water itself; fresh from the well. His efforts are rewarded
in a steady clientele.
The Lord Fox is open weekdays and Saturdays from 410
p.m. and Sundays from 3-8:30 p.m. Banquet facilities are
available upstairs. For a meal you'll rernember, drive out
to 5400 Plymouth Road, but go with an empty stomach so
you can sample all the delights Ray and his staff have to
