About Events with Ox and Stone
Ox and Stone is a Latin inspired kitchen with craft cocktails and a warm and lively candlelit atmosphere. Set within the walls of a historic 1880s mansion, it is reminiscent of a castle with its grand stairway, arched doorways and ceilings, aged walnut woodwork, and exposed brick. The bar and dining areas are comfortable and encourage late night mingling and grazing with separate lounge areas. A large upstairs room offers a quieter dining option featuring a windowed turret looking over Alexander Street.
The menu is inspired by fresh home-cooked Latin flavors and dishes but with an American culinary flair, such as braised ox tail, and paella. Tortillas are made in house, and regular menu items and specials largely capitalize on seasonal items and fresh ingredients from locally sourced farms and merchants. Our full
bar offers traditional cocktails, as well as house concoctions centered on an extensive agave and sugar spirit list (tequila, mezcal, rum, aguardiente, etc.) Each cocktail will be crafted with care and be complimented by our various dishes.
