The Puck empire continues to grow. I got a chance to catch up with Wolfgang Puck recently. He’s getting ready of open his newest branch of Cut at the famed Dorchester Hotel in London. To man the prestigious location, he’s sent over David McIntyre from Spago and WP24 as head chef. The new restaurant will have a different, bigger menu from the Beverly Hills location which will feature local and continental produce and meats and they will be serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As of right now, the opening date is set for August 22nd, but Wolfgang explained that it may get pushed back.
In other Puck news, he’s looking to open his still mysterious restaurant in the freshly remodeled Hotel Bel Air in October or November of this year. Still not much news, but I did learn the menu will be “mediterranean”.
UPDATE: Clarification on this information came in the form of an email from the Dorchester Group PR people. Read the facts (so far) about Cut in London in this updated post: https://toddrickallen.com/2011/04/29/update-on-cut-london/.
