CUT at 45 Park Lane Restaurant Review: Wolfgang Puck’s CUT quickly established itself as one of London’s significant restaurants and it hasn’t wavered. But then you would expect that from a chef who is among the world’s most experienced, operating in the Dorchester Collection’s 45 Park Lane. Separated from the main lobby area by huge floor-to-ceiling curtains, it feels cocooned and comfortable. The menu is aimed at an international clientele. Starters might include tuna tartare with wasabi aïoli and ginger, or wild mushroom risotto. Follow with a large salad or mains that could range from grilled jumbo prawns in toasted chili oil with soy, garlic, ginger, sesame and coriander to veal “Wiener Schnitzel” and a few top USDA steaks. Dinnertime brings a more extensive choice, such as three cuts of A5 Japanese 100 percent Wagyu Kagoshima beef, and a tasting of New York sirloin. Breakfast is a real favorite of non-hotel guests. Professional service and a wine list that majors in leading Californian names complete a very suave restaurant. Lunch 2-course menu with glass of wine £45.
