The Cutting Room, located in New York's Midtown East, is known for hosting fabulous live acts on their glamorous stage every evening. Co-owned by actor Chris Noth and Steve Walter, the eclectic two-level club and lounge reopened last year at its current location, and while many people flock to the venue for top notch entertainment, including performances by John Legend, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Hudson, what they often don't realize is that you can also score equally delightful food and drinks as well.
Their menu offers a wide variety of items to choose from; if you want to play it safe and healthy, they have a large selection of impressive salads, like the sunburst salad of mesclun greens, cranberries, peppers, pecans, blue cheese, and tabasco vinaigrette with a sweet bourbon reduction, or the southwest chicken salad, with avocado, heirloom tomatoes, romaine, mixed greens, roasted corn, black beans, fiesta corn tortilla, queso fresco, and a tequila-lime-cilantro dressing. If you're looking to share amongst friends, you can order the meditteranean tray of pine nut hummus, olive tapenade, tomato muhammara, and tzatziki, or the cheese board, comprised of a selection of 3 cheeses, with fruit and honeycomb, or even their pu pu platter of chicken wings, mini hot dogs, shrimp dumplings, vegetable samosas, and spring rolls. For those looking for heartier fare, any number of their entrees will do, from their traditional surf and turf dish, to flatbread pizzas, to their 32nd street burger, and New Orleans gumbo.
You can order up any concoction you want from their full service bar, including any number of their specialty cocktails, such as a figgy pop, a sort of fig vodka lemonade, which is both boozy and refreshing. Top off your evening with one of their desserts, which include a chocolate brownie, lemongrass and ginger creme brulee, peach crisp, and banana split. All of this will add to your evening of fun at The Cutting Room, along with affordable prices and a genial atmosphere.
