Global restaurateur Wolfgang Puck sets roots in Georgetown with restaurant and rooftop bar within the iconic luxury hotel
The newly reopened Rosewood Washington D.C. unveils an evolved version of Wolfgang Puck’s CUT, the refined steak restaurant by the celebrated master chef, and rooftop lounge, CUT Above, offering sweeping views of the city. Located in the heart of Georgetown, CUT D.C. is reflective of the culinary diversity of the Mid-Atlantic region and the historic charm of the neighborhood.

“I want this CUT to be different, one that is true to its location,” said Wolfgang Puck. “It’s important to me that CUT D.C. has its own soul that reflects just how unique the Mid-Atlantic is and how diners want to eat now. While guests will still be able to order the signature steaks they have come to love at CUT, we want to showcase the bounty of the region and create a menu that encourages sharing.”
Leading the menu is Executive Chef Andrew Skala, who has spent the last 13 years working alongside Wolfgang and his team at Spago Las Vegas, Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air, and, most recently, CUT New York City.
Restaurant & Bar Director Evan Moore has curated a wine list of more than 500 labels celebrating both the Old and New World, featuring nods to Puck’s homeland in Austria as well as a number of local makers such as Virginia’s RdV Vineyards and Thibautt-Janisson – the latter of which has created a 100% Chardonnay made from Tete de Cuvee exclusively for the restaurant.
CUT also boasts a robust cocktail and bar program that celebrates the region’s growing distillery scene. The menu spotlights over 11 local distilleries, including a partnership with Catoctin Creek Distillery in Virginia, for a private label rye whiskey.
Led by iconic hotel designer, Jacques Garcia (La Mamounia, The NoMad, La Reserve), the restaurant design is rooted in a mixture of American architecture and European interiors. An intimate 14-seat private dining room also is available for special events and celebrations.
The hotel’s newly redesigned rooftop bar and lounge, CUT Above, also debuts. Characterized by panoramic views of the city and plush, modern lounge furniture, the rooftop oasis offers an abbreviated menu of elevated bar fare and refreshing cocktails.
CUT D.C., located at 1050 31st Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20004.
CUT Above is open noon to 9:00 p.m., daily, weather permitting. Seating is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
