A selection of signature wagyu, dry-aged cuts of beef and offal cuts, including Wagyu Beef Heart “a la plancha” with nam jim, cucumber, lime and coriander, remain available for CUT’s steak-seeking clientele, alongside several additional meat-centric dishes considered by Wolfgang to be personal, childhood favourites, such as Veal Holstein Schnitzel with capers, white anchovies and Path Valley eggs. Lighter options well suited for lunchtime range from seafood to salads to a rotating selection of sandwiches and meat options.
Complementing CUT D.C.’s carefully curated menu, the property’s new bar boasts an extensive cocktail and wine list that further celebrates the Mid-Atlantic region with offerings from several local vineyards and distilleries. Exclusive offerings unavailable elsewhere in the city include a private label rye whiskey from Catoctin Creek Distillery and a 100% Chardonnay from Thibautt Janisson.

Combining the typical warmth and modernity of Wolfgang Puck restaurants with the signature architectural and design details reminiscent of Washington, D.C., CUT D.C. evokes a contemporary and sophisticated ambiance that invites guests to feel immediately at ease.

Pronounced décor sourced from artisans around the world further reflect the restaurant and hotel’s residential style and invite conversation among friends new and old.
An expansive, open space, the bar area features an impressive bottle display as its focal point, boasting 2,500 bottles from around the world, complemented by a raw seafood glass counter that showcases delicacies from the Chesapeake Bay and other local providers.
