About Saxon + Parole

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, Heritage farms USA roasted pork rack with purple-potato salad, and roasted Atlantic cod with a tomato-caper broth, Manila clams, braised fennel, white beans and Tuscan kale

This place is an awesome restaurant with great food and vibes. I’ve gone here before on a date and also with a bunch of friends and it’s perfect for both occasions. It has an energetic and trendy feel with great decorations inside. The meats and cheeses are awesome and you can’t go wrong with almost any of their main courses. Some of the main dishes I’ve had are the lobster gnudi, pork chop, ribeye and also the duck. They are all top notch, this is my new go to spot.

The burger was phenomenal. The seafood tower was mediocre. The service was below average- our waiter wasn’t rude, but wasn’t friendly or very informative. He was rarely present and when he was it was unmemorable.

Really nice. The ricotta gnudi was excellent and, since we have not tried it before, we decided to test out the impossible burger. Really enjoyed it! They have a good wine list though it is pretty pricey and a good selection of cocktails.

I've been here several times... and it never disappoints! The ambiance is great and the food is unique and delicious. My favorite is the foie gras creme brulee! It's a must for any visit. The service was excellent as well.

The place was freezing. Waiter said heat wasn’t working. Great! next time please let us know before we sit down and order and when we ask you about it don’t pretend someone’s working on it until we finish our meal and then tell us that it’s not working.
Food was ok but the heat issue made the experience a bad one overall

Saxon + Parole is a fabulous trendy but relaxed restaurant in a cool NYC neighborhood, and the quality and the service are both outstanding -- I tried the 'Impossible Burger', which was mind-blowingly good and which is worth going to New York for!

Fabulous meal! Had friends visiting from Europe and were blowing away by the wine, innovative food and fabulous service. One guest is vegan, and the menu had many options to make the whole dinner very inclusive. It also wasn't so noisy that we had to yell to hear each other, which was great. Very positive experience and are looking forward to visiting again.

We went to Saxon & Parole specifically for their vegan Impossible Burger option. It did not disappoint and was the most amazing vegan burger we had both ever had. I could not recommend it highly enough- even meat eaters would love it! I had the limoncello martini, boyfriend had a regular martini. We left full and happy and our server was wonderful, I wish I remembered her name. She told us Saxon & Parole strives to welcome vegetarians and vegans with their menu options.

Saxon + Parole’s food was perfect. The seafood tower and the meat + cheese + pickles starter were divine. The special 40 oz. dry age ribeye was fantastic. However, while the creative drinks were tasty especially the fig smash, the wine was at best pedestrian and not properly updated with the wines presently in the cellar. After requesting the well sought out 2010 Alta Rioja, the waitress stated that they were out of it. The waitress told me that they had run out of that wine. I then requested the 2010 Mocali Brunello, and a 2012 was brought to the table instead. Again I was told that they were out of the 2010 vintage. There’s plenty of room to improve this fantastic restaurant’s pedestrian wine list. Moreover, an accurate depiction on the menu of the current wines in the cellar, is not only necessary but really mandatory. If I go back, because the food was truly fantastic, I will expect for the wine to match the gastronomic experience. This past weekend it did not.
