Fox Restaurant Concepts, a culinary tour de force in the Valley since 1998, is preparing to launch its biggest project to date. Located on 7th Street a few blocks south of Bethany Home Road, The Yard will be like a backyard, front porch, living room, and kitchen all rolled into one. Two Fox restaurants, Culinary Dropout and Little Cleo's Fish House and Oyster Bar, will open side by side, and the complex will also include a coffee shop and retail stores.
