Saxon + Parole, conceived by the award-winning AvroKO Hospitality Group and Executive Chef Brad Farmerie, creators of NoLIta's PUBLIC, brings a global approach to traditional grill fare, within a warm and inviting space on the Bowery. The 112-seat restaurant – named after two prize-winning, New York-bred racehorses – features rich design elements and modernist details, paying homage to the numerous horse stables that once populated Lower Manhattan. The menu explores traditional grill fare, with a focus on domestic meat and seafood, as well as seasonal and sustainable produce. Diners can expect a global twist in the seasoning, cooking methods, and ingredients – highlighted in dishes such as 28-day dry-aged NY strip steak with bone-marrow béarnaise, grilled Berkshire pork chop with red wine poached pear, goat cheese polenta, and watercress, and Scottish salmon with wild mushroom, romanesco, baby carrots and Meyer lemon crème fraîche.

My porkchop was tasty but slightly dry. Wife's burger was outstanding! House cocktails vodka w/ their fresh squeezed juices was pretty tasteless. Wait staff was great and attentive. Bathrooms nice, clean & roomy. Will i be a repeat customer no.

We went for a birthday dinner. The service and food were outstanding! There was so much flavor in every dish. And please do yourself a favor and order the Horchata Sundae for dessert. Will definitely be back again soon.

2nd time at S&P. Food wasn't as good as last time. I had the pork chop which was just ok, lacked a bit of flavor. For appetizers, we had the truffle burrata which was a bit overdone and we had to wait 5 minutes for them to get the actual truffles. The crudo was very good as well as the bone marrow.
The waitress was professional and overall, was a good experience.

Unfortunately what was once our favorite restaurant for many years has deteriorated. The food was exceptional in the early years and then went through a phase where everything was sweet with honey glaze (including the burgers, brussel sprouts, etc.) to the point that we stopped going & took a break. Now we decided to go again for a special occasion, only to find that every dish we ordered had thick creamy cheeses (including blue cheese in the bone marrow sauce, on the steak, potato sides, even the corn side was baked in it). Nothing we ordered was fresh & light. Everything tasted of cheese. Also, for a restaurant of this caliber we'd expect them to be able to transfer the bar tab to the table, but had to wait a long time for (poor) bar service in order to pay. The two redeeming aspects were the exceptional service by our waitress and the steak itself was delicious. We will have to give it another break, sadly.

Was lured here by a WSJ feature on Plant Protein and the ImpossibleBurger served here; our mixed 4-some of a vegan, vegetarian and 2 carnivores all found wonderful choices. Probably the best restaurant meal we’ve had in a while ... and we’ve had some good ones! Great excitement and positive vibes on a Thursday night in NYC Will surely return!

Had the chicken, the chicken was very tasty but the carrots that came with it were even better! Also had the broccoli but would not recommend it since both of us didn’t like it: very bitter and the taste was odd. Service was fine, some room for improvement: for the example we didn’t eat the broccoli at all and normally a waiter would ask if something was wrong/if everything was okay but that didn’t happen. Price is reasonable for NY but price/quality in my opinion a bit high.

After a long winter of hibernating, we ventured back "uptown" to S+P. Why did we wait so long?? Everything was delicious and perfectly presented. Hoping to be back to our regular visits!

This was our special dinner for our New York visit... Very creative cocktails, and food was excellent - pricey but worth it. They do have a way with smoke and food - even dessert in the form of S’mores - certainly never had anything like it before. We liked that we weren’t crushed in to our dining space and had a nice size table to enjoy! Be sure to visit the bathrooms - very atmospheric in a good way!

I’ve been here before and returned for the food food. The service was very disappointing. Our food took forever to come and the waitress was rude when we asked about it. We had to ask several times for our drinks before getting them.

I suggested to friends that we have dinner here. I'd been before and enjoyed everything about the restaurant. But because my friends couldn't find anything on the menu that appealed to them it became an uncomfortable situation, and then they weren't happy with the food although I thought it was good. I would return, but obviously with different friends.

I’ve heard nothing but great things about Saxon + Parole. The service staff did a phenomenal job of keeping our glasses full and needs met. My co-worker and I shared the Certified Angus Beef ®️ brand hanger steak - SO good! It was cooked perfectly. The Brussels sprouts were sweet and savory, french fries delicious and the truffle appetizer was out of this world. This place is well worth the trip.

This is a really cute place to bring out-of-town guests. The size of the dishes vary greatly, and it seems as though you're encouraged to share. It seemed to be pretty meat-heavy The service was OK - the staff could have been a bit more attentive.
