Esteemed celebrity chef David Burke has taken the wraps off his newest project: the Fox and the Falcon by David Burke in South Orange, his ninth restaurant in the state.

The award winning Burke, a New Jersey native, is “recognized internationally for his revolutionary techniques, exceptional skills, successful restaurant empire and his many TV appearances. In the parlance of today’s celebrity driven culture, he is a rock star of the culinary world.”

The Fox and Falcon will feature some of Burke’s signature dishes like popovers served steaming hot, lobster dumplings, clothesline bacon and various cuts of his famous U.S.-patented pink-Himalayan-salt-aged beef.

Burke, who is taking over as the operating management partner, said in a statement,

The Fox has been around for a few years and has a super tavern vibe, similar to our flagship David Burke Tavern in New York City or The Goat by David Burke in Union Beach.

The restaurant has multiple spaces not only for private dining occasions, but for other uses, as well, like trivia nights, live music, and comedy shows. “We’ve already revamped the menu and have some fun plans ahead that I know will be a hit in this lively community.”
