Owner: Isaac Fox
“When you step through my door, you are not a ‘customer’ or a ‘patron’. You are a guest in my own home. If only for a few hours, I want every guest who enters LaChasse to feel that they are the center of the universe, and I want to ensure that they have an experience that they will never forget.”
It could be said that Isaac Fox danced his way to becoming a restaurateur. After studying music for two years at Indiana University Southeast, he taught ballroom dance. He also spent some time working in fast casual restaurants, which may have sparked his interest in a career in food. But, his passion for food, craft cocktails and bartending was fully ignited when he became part of the teams at Southern Indiana’s Bistro New Albany and the Speakeasy Jazz Club.
When Isaac and his wife Tenille moved to Louisville, where they and their eight children now live, he fell head over heels in love with food, wine, spirits and hospitality. He gained bartending and management experience at Basa ( as bar manager and assistant manager), at Jack Fry’s (as server and bartender) and at Volare (as bar manager.)
A multi-award winning mixologist, he has taken home top prizes in competitions such as the Four Roses Mint Julep Competition, Bourbon Classic and other events. His creations have garnered the attention of local publications as well as those in New York and Japan.
He is someone who knows that dreams really do come true. In October 2015, he realized his dream of owning a restaurant. He debuted La Chasse to considerable fanfare, and the accolades keep coming. As a new restaurateur, he has established a hallmark, treating each guest to a fine orchestration of his love for food, wine, cocktails and service.
