NEW YORK, March 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, LDV Hospitality opens the flagship location of American Cut, its deco-inspired modern steak restaurant, in the heart of Midtown Manhattan alongside Chef/Partner Marc Forgione. Located at 109 East 56th Street at Park Avenue, American Cut joins the neighborhood's burgeoning dining scene, demonstrating LDV's evolution since its inception in 2008.
"Midtown represents the epicenter of New York City and thus, some might argue, the world," noted John Meadow, Founder and President of LDV Hospitality. "It's an exciting time in the neighborhood in respects to dining and we couldn't be more thrilled."
American Cut pays homage to the original New York dining experience – the steakhouse – by capturing the nostalgic charm of yesteryear and adapting it to today's modern social lifestyle. Chef Marc Forgione's menu alludes to this notion, offering signatures such as the Chili Lobster; the "OG" 1924 Hotel Caesar; and the 42 oz. Tomahawk Rib-Eye, in addition to several new dishes such as a show-stopping 52 oz. Porterhouse with flaming bone marrow butter prepared tableside.
For the first time, American Cut will offer lunch service – launching in the near future. The menu, adapted for daytime, will include a three-course prix-fixe, as well as a wide selection of a la carte offerings.
Designed in collaboration with Chris Sheffield of SLDesign, the 6,000 square foot, 130-seat dining room includes nods to 1970s glam rock, taking inspiration from the era of Blondie while incorporating American Cut's signature art deco sensibilities and shining a light on the historic details of The Lombardy's opulent space. For meetings and events, American Cut also offers private dining options, including a clandestine wine room behind the bar and a 40-seat dining section behind a bold, laser-cut chevron wall.
American Cut's 36-seat bar and lounge area comes alive with an interactive craft cocktail program. In addition, a dedicated "Reserve" section, featuring whiskey-based classics, honors the spirit of the old school steakhouse experience.
The restaurant will serve dinner daily, with lunch on weekdays coming soon. Reservations are preferred and walk-ins welcome. For more information, please visit www.americancutrestaurants.com, call 212-388-5277, or follow @americancut and @ldvlife on Instagram.
