Saxon + Parole | 7/21 Queen Street, Commercial Bay

Saxon+Parole_Impossible Burger.jpg

Saxon + Parole is a modern steakhouse from New York that has recently opened in Commercial Bay. The menu, created by Chef Brad Farmerie, is inspired by traditional New York City steakhouses with contemporary touches that celebrate New Zealand ingredients.

We recommend that you try out their award-winning Saxon Burger (made with 28-day dry aged beef) or their grass- and grain-fed steaks served with bone-marrow bearnaise. If you feel adventurous (and hungry), we recommend the Holy Cow steak sharing plate that serves 4-6 people and features 5 cuts of meat from two different farms, both grass and grain fed. And pair it up with your own beverage creation - they have a DIY martini trolley in The Martini Room!
