Pucker at 45 Park Lane
It was a weekday night, after an evening of art at one of the Bond Street jouilleries, that my dear friend who had hosted the evening decided we should try to get a bite nearby and that Wolfgang Puck's Cut Restaurant at 45 Park Lane might afford us a table. And so despite my doubts at any availability it seemed on arrival that if we were patient we would be accommodated within 20 minutes of so.
The restaurant is situated at the end of the slightly tight but extremely well appointed lobby of 45, which is modern and club in decor, a style which flows through to Cut itself. Being a fairly narrow and elongated restaurant, there are celebrations of chandeliers which are on the high lightened end of things, keeping the environs light and looking more spacious than it really is.
And so to the steaks which vary hugely in price; but that evening having chosen an average priced steak by comparison, it was succulent, flavoursome, and entirely satisfying. I will not go into detail as to what and why but signs that the beef was cooked slowly or seared to perfection in one of many ways to retain flavour and juice, were likely few factors of many that contributed to the delivery.
Having previously been somewhat sceptical of a “steak house” focus being haute cuisine, I came away with refreshed admiration of what can still be relatively innovative within this segment of the market. All in all, go try it though I would say that Cut takes full advantage of Park Lane prices.
