Great grilled meats and seafood

I've been wanting to try Saxon + Parole for a while now and was not disappointed. It accurately bills itself as a place for grilled meats and fish. Started with some west coast oysters. They were very good although I had to ask two waitresses several times for the list and never actually got it. I... read more

I try and visit here every time I am in New York, their brunch is fantastic, I would however recommend booking a table as they do get very busy! Everytime I go I always order the BLAT, (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato) and am never disappointed! They also offer great brunch time cocktails which my partner and I thoroughly enjoy!... More

Our Friend Elie recommended this place and we were not disappointed. It's an airy modern/industrial space with nice touches like crystal decanters around. The drink list is outstanding. The oysters were extra fresh. We shared charcuterie that really could have served as the whole lunch. Ryne had what he described as the best hamburger ever - even better than the... More

Highlight was an outrageously good grilled octopus and calamari salad with radish,c leery and capers. Possibly the most enjoyable dish so far on my trip and was enough to make me regret ordering the flatiron steak which turned out to be a rather bland. Wife's burger was very good though not quite the high standard one leading publication built it... More

Loved my visit and meal! The drinks are wonderful, especially the Lemon Verbena Sazerac and the Manhattan on Tap! Loved the hot rolls they bring out before the meal. The burger is wonderful. Looking forward to coming back soon to sit at the bar for oysters, burger and cocktails!

If you want a good meal, and a speak easy ambiance this is the place to go. I must say, my favorite part of the night was our Australian waitress who was efficient, quick, professional and very fun to interact with. It was good but nothing over the top special which is why I am not eager to go back.

My boyfriend and I had dinner together in this beautiful space. There is one negative and that is that it is very noisy and so was a little difficult to hear each other. It was a busy weekend night, so to be expected but just note this if you are looking for something where talking needs to be unencumbered. The... More

Nice decor here (see photo) and attentive service. The food here is clearly inconsistent. That opinion is the result of a sharp contrast in quality of the preparation and resulting taste of my appetizer and main course. The appetizer that I had was described on the menu as, "Brussels sprout leaves, poached egg, bacon lardon, yuzu hollandaise, and toasted hazelnut... More
