Wolfgang Puck's Cut sets opening date for May 2014
Celeb chef Wolfgang Puck will make his Middle East debut at The Address Downtown Dubai with the opening of his modern American steak restaurant, Cut, in May.
The restaurant was announced as part of the property last year and will mirror the Cut restaurants in Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, Singapore, and London.
"Dubai, an international city, brings together leisure and business travellers to one dynamic destination," said Puck. "The Address Downtown Dubai is a phenomenal venue with unparalleled views and is the perfect fit for our goal to establish Cut as the best steak restaurant in the city, and the UAE."
Internationally renowned hospitality designer Tony Chi will create the Dubai branch of Cut, and his brief was to create innovative, elegant, and refined interior.
Emaar Hospitality Group CEO Philippe Zuber said: "We are proud that The Address Downtown Dubai will welcome the world’s foremost celebrity chef to Dubai. With Cut, we are creating another new lifestyle destination in our hotel – a perfect fit to our focus on providing our guests unmatched culinary experiences."
The restaurant will feature Puck's signature contemporary interpretation on the traditional American steak restaurant and will feature a range of prime dry- and wet-aged beef, including selections from the United States and Australia as well as true 100% Japanese wagyu beef. The menu will also have a selection seafood and shellfish entrees, with extensive pairing through international vintages.
This will add to Puck's portfolio of 23 fine dining restaurants around the world.
