The Cut is an elegant, basement steakhouse and bar housed in heritage-listed, former bond stores in The Rocks.
Channelling vintage glamour and a sophisticated whisky vibe, The Cut blends Australian post-colonial charm with a classic American-style steakhouse ambience throughout its striking dining room and moodily-lit bar.
Inspired by the classic steakhouses of New York, the culinary focus is on the best-quality, responsibly-sourced beef that is dry-aged in-house and charcoal-grilled to perfection. Fabulous DNA continues to underscore the menu, including The Cut’s showstopper dish: slow-cooked,
Dijon-crusted prime rib off the bone, which has been a menu highlight since the restaurant opened. Charcoal grilling extends to a range of exceptional, sustainable seafood and whole fish, and even vegetable side dishes are given a flavoursome lick of the charcoal flame.
By day, The Cut is a power-broking business lunch destination and a ‘must-do’ for tourists who are drawn through the heritage façade for its outstanding, Australian beef credentials. By night, it is easier to slip into an underground, speakeasy vibe with martinis served tableside, bourbon and rye-based cocktails ageing gracefully in barrels and a splash of bubbles, fizz, and fun cocktails for easy pre or post-dinner drinking.
