Almost exactly one month after the AvroKo team shuttered their pretty but underperforming colonial-themed spot on the Bowery Double Crown, they come out swinging with Saxon & Parole, an American restaurant with a horse and bourbon motif in the same space. Taking a cue from the McNalleyverse, they've lined the walls above tables with liquor bottles (including their own Parole brand of bourbon), and they've added dark curving leather booths to one dining room and long banquettes to another, outfitted the tables with tablecloths (a rarer and rarer sight these days), and added some new light fixtures and the illusions of working fireplaces.
As for the menu, Brad Farmerie is going all American with pork chops, burgers, steaks, whole Maine lobster, whole roasted branzino, and grilled tuna. There's also charcuterie, a lengthy cheese menu, a seafood tower, a section of housemade pots ("seasonal pots of deliciousness"), and appetizers like beet salad, salmon tartare, and bone marrow. Take a tour of the space above and take a gander at the menu below. They are now open and accepting reservations. More info here.
