The Poni Room is a new seafood and rosé-focused dining den located beneath NoHo neighborhood favorite Saxon + Parole. Chef Brad Farmerie and Chef Nicole Gajadhar’s menu is driven by delicious under-the-sea dishes that compliment the extensive rosé program and signature cocktails. As an introduction to the neighborhood, The Poni Room is offering a glass of rosé on the house and 25% off with the code #rosécurious.
Chef Gajadhar and Farmerie’s menu of seafood-forward small plates, skewers and large plate offerings takes a pan-Asian approach full of varied and unique flavors. Guests can enjoy Uni Toast, Smoked Salmon with trout roe, avocado, cucumber and shishimi togarashi rice chip; Coconut Laksa with crab; Scallops Skewer with sweet chili sauce; and a Lobster Bake served with bao buns, lettuce wraps, house-made sauces and accompaniments. The menu also offers delectable, non-seafood options including Sesame Soy-Braised Lotus Root; Crispy Pork Belly with cucumber, chili-caramel, mint and cilantro; and Forever Crispy Wings.
The beverage program has a fun, interactive quality where guests can venture into the beverage room and take a look around at what suits their fancy. The biggest standout is the 20 different rosés on offer from a variety of winemakers and regions domestically and internationally. The pink juice will be available by the glass, by the bottle, and on tap. There will also be a modest selection of specialty cocktails including a rotating boozy slushie, bottled cocktails, as well as a selection of seasonal beers hailing from all over Asia.
