Chef-restaurateur extraordinaire Wolfgang Puck has opened restaurants all over the world, but never one in the gastronomic capital of New York City. Come July next year, though, Puck will finally set foot in the city with CUT, his modern steakhouse concept that started at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. and has since expanded to locations in London, Dubai, Bahrain, and more.
“I always dreamt about coming to New York and doing something great,” Puck said at a party on Nov. 17 celebrating his partnership with the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Manhattan, where his New York restaurant will reside. CUT will be the only restaurant on the hotel’s property, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Puck said his dream was long in the making. “I thought it would never happen. It was the longest negotiation. I had two children in between.”
Now, he’s working on developing new dishes in the test kitchen at CUT Beverly Hills. “I want New York City to be the flagship,” he added.
