New York developer Larry Silverstein and Wolfgang Puck announce today that the chef and restaurateur will open his first New York City concept, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, alongside the new Private Residences at 30 Park Place in July 2016. The announcement marks the extension of the chef’s long-standing relationship with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and the seventh CUT restaurant worldwide.
CUT by Wolfgang Puck at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown will be the only featured restaurant on property, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The contemporary steak restaurant offers a sophisticated menu featuring the finest cuts of prime beef, an extensive wine list, cutting-edge design and impeccable service.
“For my first restaurant in New York City, it was a matter of finding the right location and partner,” said internationally acclaimed chef Wolfgang Puck. “We have a successful relationship with Four Seasons Hotels already and, combined with the partnership of Silverstein Properties, the timing was just right to bring one of my flagship brands, CUT, to the city.”
The opening of CUT by Wolfgang Puck marks the first ever restaurant in New York City by this celebrity chef and restaurateur, who has successfully opened a portfolio of fine dining concepts in various culinary capitals across the globe. Similarly, this is the first downtown Manhattan location for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, further emphasizing Tribeca as one of Manhattan’s most dynamic and vibrant neighborhoods. The opening of CUT by Wolfgang Puck parallels Silverstein Properties’ commitment to this neighborhood, bringing in a like-minded partner to complement the luxurious lifestyle of the first Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences at 30 Park Place, and will be enjoyed by the condominium residents and neighborhood residents alike.
“30 Park Place is Downtown Manhattan’s first five-star living experience, and we are thrilled to have Wolfgang Puck as our chef partner,” said Larry Silverstein, Chairman of Silverstein Properties Inc. “Wolfgang’s attention to detail, outstanding commitment to fine dining experiences, and culinary genius made him the obvious choice for Four Seasons, 30 Park Place and Downtown.”
“For the residents of 30 Park Place – Four Seasons Private Residences New York Downtown, CUT by Wolfgang Puck is a spectacular addition to a fully serviced lifestyle provided by the legendary Four Seasons,” says Kelly Kennedy Mack, President of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. She continues, “There are very few New Yorkers who can say they have a restaurant by an award-winning chef just an elevator ride away.”
Designed by internationally renowned Robert A.M. Stern Architects, 30 Park Place is a limestone and precast concrete tower standing at an impressive 926 feet, with 82 stories and sweeping 360-degree views of New York City. In addition to the 185-room Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, 30 Park Place will feature 157 graciously appointed homes starting on the 40th floor, crowned by penthouse terraces. Residents will enjoy nearly 40,000 square feet of amenities, as well as a full suite of hotel services, all managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. Condominium sales have enjoyed terrific success, and closings are slated to begin in Spring 2016.
Additional amenities include a sunlit 75-foot swimming pool, the renowned Four Seasons spa including steam rooms, treatment rooms, and salon, ballroom facilities, meeting rooms, business center, additional storage units and a parking garage. The hotel is slated to open mid-2016.
“Four Seasons will extend its long-standing relationship with Wolfgang and the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group with the opening of CUT. We are delighted to partner with him for his first Manhattan restaurant located at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown in the heart of Lower Manhattan’s burgeoning culinary scene. At Four Seasons we always look to create relevant and locally authentic dining experiences that fit with our locations. CUT will be a perfect complement to the dynamic energy of Lower Manhattan” says Peter Humig, General Manager, Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown.
30 Park Place is situated in the lively New York neighborhood of Tribeca known for its sophisticated and cultured community. The tower is steps away from luxury retailers and local boutiques, and conveniences such as Whole Foods and the Tribeca Greenmarket, as well as upcoming retailers such as Eataly and Saks Fifth Avenue. Tribeca is well known internationally for the annual Tribeca Film Festival launched by acclaimed actor and New Yorker, Robert De Niro.
