CUT - Las Vegas
Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck opens the first sequel to his famed Beverly Hills-based, steak-focused restaurant in the Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. Its take on the classic steakhouse is in true Puck form, with modern accents throughout the space and updated menu items. Adjacent to the restaurant’s main dining room is an energetic, upscale bar and lounge showcasing custom cocktails, classic drinks and a "Rough Cuts" menu featuring CUT’s popular appetizers.
This is a pretty ritzy restaurant with indulgent, chef-driven starters such as American Wagyu beef sashimi, warm veal tongue and bone marrow flan. As far as steaks, they are all grilled over hard wood and charcoal, then finished under a 1,200 degree broiler. Cuts range from a 32-ounce U.S.D.A. Prime Porterhouse for two to Japanese Wagyu ribeye and New York strip. Non-steak favorites include whole roasted French loup de mar, sauteed Dover sole and grilled Colorado lamb chops.
Bar bites from the "Rough Cuts" menu range from tempura onion rings to Maryland blue crab rolls.
