It's rare that a New York restaurant offers parking validation, but that's the first hint at what kind of place Reserve Cut aspires to be. On the second floor of the building that hosts the Setai spa and club, you'll find a steakhouse outfitted with a floor-to-ceiling gallery of wine bottles encased in thick glass and steel, like an exhibit at a space museum. It feels a bit like a modern temple in L.A. Less pleasing are the food’s price tags. The selection of eight steaks — aged for 36 days, in-house — carry an average cost of $62. And if you’re going to charge $46 for a rib eye, it better be perfect. While the beef fulfilled its promise of fatty marbling, a recent serving was overcooked even when rare was requested. A better bet is the sushi: a light, fresh vegetable roll comes wrapped in firm cucumbers instead of seaweed, and it's topped with wild mushrooms. The spicy tuna, chunky and zesty, is exemplary. This restaurant is a stone’s throw away from the New York Stock Exchange, and it's clearly a place for big spenders.Recommended Dishes
