"American Cut Is Where Steak Night Is Done Right"
American Cut opened in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood in 2013, paying homage to the city’s authentic, aspirational dining experience– The Steakhouse. With modern influences to both its cuisine and service, American Cut offers a unique and unexpected twist to classic dishes and cocktails, all while capturing the nostalgic glamour of yesteryear.
American Cut combines bold flavors with distinctive style to create an unparalleled take on American classics, like our house-favorite Chili Lobster and famous Pastrami Ribeye. A mix of tableside preparations, such as our 40 oz. Tomahawk Chop flambé and Smoked Old Fashioneds, create an interactive and unforgettable dining experience.
Under the creative vision of Founder and President John Meadow, American Cut’s talented team, committed to culinary integrity and excellence in service, work to deliver unforgettable experiences time and time again. Together, our team channels La Dolce Vita, “The Good Life,” through their passion for authentic and unparalleled hospitality.
