The other inspiration for the restaurant is the patty melt, the
burger and Swiss with caramelized onions on marbled bread. Wolfe wanted to open the kind of place that would be a suitable environment for the sandwich and a milk shake. Or a beer.

In a departure from sister restaurants, Foxy Brown carries a larger selection of craft beers.
