From a press release:

“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 kitchen 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. True to Wolfgang’s hallmark ethos of using only the finest and freshest ingredients, Skala has solidified relationships with farmers, ranchers, dairy farmers and fishermen from the area to source seasonal products and items such as seafood from the Chesapeake Bay and wagyu beef from Virginia.

Back in March of 2018 we reported that a liquor license placard had been posted for a:

“New Restaurant, serving Spanish cuisine/tapas with a vegetarian infusion. Sidewalk Café with 20 seats. Total Occupancy Load is 350 with seating for 200.”

I was wondering what was happening there and was told that the deal fell through. So your dreams of dressing in the 80s are alive and well. Until another deal is done. Read More

Thanks to Eric for sending:

“Wanted to pass along that Dent Place Market in Georgetown finally opened. I popped in and had a look around…the products are definitely on the more boutique/artisanal side but seemed to have a decent variety. The owner said they’re going to be adding more items, and FWIW the coffee I had was good.”
