Cut by Wolfgang Puck

By Saturday, December 05, 2020 , , , ,

"Oh we're just here for a regular dinner", i told the server at CUT, without fully realizing the burn of our plastic at the end of this regular dinner. 
Well tbh i knew a meal at CUT by Wolfgang Puck is going to be a tad pricey, which is why i thought i scored a deal with their early 3 course dinner at only $95 per person. But well, we do love a cocktail to start and wine pairing also seemed like the best way to enjoy their beef selection and possibly upgrading the cut of meat to something like a filet mignon or ribeye... and yea.
Could i get a better steak elsewhere for cheaper? Or a better dining experience? Likely yes. Jr enjoyed the dinner at Spago (another of Wolfgang's creations, read review here) more than he did CUT. Honestly i was more impressed with my first course of Maryland blue crab cake than i was with the steak. I guess it could be due to our expectations. 

Anyhow, definitely go for the crab cake which is chock full of chunky sweet flesh. The basil aioli provided the perfect herby citrusy complement to the crustacean. Jr had the Austrian Oxtail Bouillon with Chervil, Bone Marrow Dumpling which paled in comparison to the robust flavors in the crab cake. 
For mains, well, i can't imagine leaving CUT without trying their steak. A half portion USDA Prime Sirloin Steak is included in the menu and comes with perfectly crisped hand cut fries. Other cuts of meat are offered at a supplementary cost. We felt that the sirloin was more flavorful than the filet mignon. The meats are quite well-seasoned (a little heavy on the salt in fact) and thus there wasn't really a need for further seasoning or sauces. For non-steak eaters (why do you even bother going to CUT if you're not having steak), there are also a mushroom pasta, and a parsley halal young chicken (yes that is how it was labelled) on the menu. You could also make your meal a Surf n Turf with an addition of half Maine lobster if you wish. A choice of side pairs the mains and i would always pick a creamed spinach (it was creamy the way i like it). 

Desserts were spectacular. We loved the warm spiced and crunchy butterscotch apple crumble with soft slices of apples, oats and Tahitian vanilla ice cream. I don't know about you but apple crumble always feels very festive to me, perfect for Christmas!

The praline mascarpone bar, with chocolate chiffon, passionfruit guava sorbet had a mix of textures though i though the chiffon didn't go as well as planned in the bar and its airiness was lost in the overall bite. 

While the wine flight pairing (a white and a red, 90ml each) for $28 seemed like a good deal, the wines aren't that great imo. If you must, the Chablis was better than the Rose and the CS better than the Shiraz. Their cocktails are certainly better. 

So back to this regular dinner at CUT. The food was quite regular but the price was not. Probably would not be back for anything other than their crab cake and fries, plus desserts perhaps.
