LOVED American Cut! This is my new favorite steakhouse. I arrived a half hour early, and the staff could not have been more welcoming to me. I was shown to a lovely booth, and the service from everyone was terrific. (Almost as if they were trained by Danny Meyer). Even a staff member who was not taking care of my table came by to welcome me since she remembered me from The NoMad.
The "everything" biscuit with cream cheese is delicious, but since I had already planned my dinner, I needed to save room.
My first course was the yummy potato latkes--a must dish.
My main course was the pastrami coated ribeye served a beautiful hot pink medium. Funny how I've always ordered my steak med-rare, but it turns out I really like medium. Terrific char and great flavor and tender too! Half of it will be a wonderful dinner for tomorrow.
My sides: the Pommes purée a la Robuchon may not have been as stellar as at Joel Robuchon, but they were delicious. I also ordered tonight's special of Brussels sprouts with rutabaga and bacon (and I think a soy glaze)--delicious too, and better than at The NoMad and Betony. Took home half of the potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
Had to save room for the Cracker Jack Sundae and the espresso martini. Both were delicious! Will definitely order them again. Too bad I couldn't take them home too.
Considering I ordered enough food for two, the bill was very reasonable (for me). I was never rushed or ignored, but was treated as a welcomed guest. Definitely plan to return to American Cut!
