Celebrity chef and Starbucks opponent Wolfgang Puck is finally opening his "very important" restaurant in New York City, a move the chef has been teasing for a long time. The chef will be opening another outpost of CUT by Wolfgang Puck inside the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown in July of next year. This will be the seventh CUT location worldwide and the first major restaurant by the Austrian-born chef in New York City (the airport doesn't count).
"For my first restaurant in New York City, it was a matter of finding the right location and partner," Puck said in a release, citing his ongoing partnership with Four Seasons hotels. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and will offer a "sophisticated menu featuring the finest cuts of prime beef, an extensive wine list, cutting-edge design and impeccable service." The Times got a sneak peek at the menu, which includes 10 different steaks plus dozens of toppings, sauces and sides.
