Wolfgang Puck has opened dozens of restaurants around the globe over the last three decades, but the chef has never operated a restaurant in Manhattan. That's all about to change next year when Puck will open a branch of his popular upscale steakhouse chain Cut in the new Four Seasons hotel at 99 Church Street in the Financial District. The chef tells Flo Fab that he had opportunities to open in NYC over the years but "the location was not right, or we as a team were not ready."  But now the stars are aligned and Puck is ready to fire up the grill (or broiler) and serve the good people of this city some fancy steaks.  Eater LA described the original Cut in the Beverly Wilshire as Puck's "minimalist masterpiece," where guests can choose from American Wagyu or "true Japanese 100% Wagyu beef from Miyazaki Prefecture, Kyushu."  It's slated to open in summer 2016.
