Inside a Rochester landmark

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.

In addition to regular service, Ox and Stone is host to a number of events throughout the year, with the ability to accommodate birthdays, rehearsal dinners, weddings, and more.

The mission of Ox and Stone is to provide our patrons with a warm and inviting atmosphere, marked by a high level of service, and a unique, enjoyable, and consistent dining and drinking experience. Ox and Stone is open for lunch, dinner, and late night on weekends..

cocktails

classic and balanced

Highly trained and passionately obsessed tenders of their craft armed with the freshest fruits and herbs, house made bitters and tinctures, that's who you'll find behind the bar of the Ox and Stone.  Marked by an extensive tequila and mezcal selection, our spirit portfolio has a wide range of whiskey, liqueurs and amaro.     

beer

rare and rotational

It's likely you'll not see the same draught lineup even if you were to dine here every day of the week.  Eight taps feature beers selected for their seasonality, taste and quality.  This mentality goes for our bottle and can list with both domestic and imported beers.

wine

latin, european, american

Certainly wines from Spain, Chile and Argentina pair well with our food given our Latin influence.  We're smart enough to know that so too does wine from France, Germany, California and elsewhere.  We choose our wines only after tasting to ensure for good pairings and enjoyability.
