#Foodheaux Review: The Poni Room American Izakaya Bar in NYC

When I moved to NYC years ago I knew nothing about nothing. Friends guided me to places that they thought I would like and Saxon + Parole was one of them. It makes sense now since AvroKO Hospitality is responsible for some of my favorite go-to’s to this day. If you aren’t familiar,  Saxon + Parole is an American meat and whiskey-centric eatery with an equestrian-theme situated on the corner of Bowery and Bleecker in NoHo near The Bowery Hotel. They do an awesome Derby Party every year.

Nowadays I do know a lot about a lot and as a seasoned NYC Foodheaux, I was surprised when I heard the location of The Poni Room because surely if it was on that corner I would’ve seen it. Every single fitness studio I frequent is within a three-block radius.

Then I learned this little hideaway isn’t visible from the street. It’s tucked underneath Saxon + Parole which made me extra excited to uncover this gem.

The Vibe

This spot is the perfect date night or friend catch up location since it’s so intimate. Sharing small plates (everything here is meant to be eaten family-style) and copious amounts of wine seem to play well with both. Once you check off the items you want on the menu head back to the very Instagrammable Rose Tub and pour yourself a pitcher in still, sparkling, or slushie form.
