Even though the name is a littlebit misleading, The cut just sounds like another ordinary steakhouse, it offers way more than I expected. Living for quite some time in Beijing we started recently reading more and more in local magazines about the cut and its new chef so we decided to finally give it a try and see what Fairmont Beijing and its Cut has to offer.
We were warmly welcome by the service staff just at the elevator and directly brought to the seat. After choosing a cocktail from their specially designed pre dinner drinks list (did you know you could drink balsamic vinegar???) we started to study the foood menu. The selection of the dishes is very wide and all of them sound absolutely delicious. While looking in the menu a waiter walks up with a display of the 6 different kind of beef and introduces them to us. Never had a "steak sommelier" before. After we chose our starters and steaks (incl. free side dish!!) we got first two(2!!!) amuse bouche served before the actual chosen starter came.This is what I call value for money!!! After the starter a sorbet (ever had tomato sorbet before?? I never want anything else again) was served that was just the right refreshment before our steaks which were absolutely outstanding. Desserts were equally tasty and impressive.
Overall the Cut is a steakhouse that is much more than just a steakhouse. A restaurant design that is a little strange in the beginning but once seated for a while really easy on the eyes, a chef that seems to be confident enough to develope his own steakhouse style without losing customers satisfaction out of his sight and a service that, even though a bit clumsy at times, really works well together and makes a dining experience very special.
We will definitely be back for more.
