CUT NYC Debuts Outdoor Dining Space: The CUT Terrace at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown

Wolfgang Puck’s Manhattan outpost announces outdoor dining option for guests
September 14, 2021,
New York, U.S.A.

CUT by Wolfgang Puck at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown today unveils a new outdoor dining experience, the CUT Terrace. Located on Barclay Street, the CUT Terrace will serve as an extension of the indoor restaurant and feature additional seating for Hotel guests and locals who wish to dine outdoors to the sound of a curated playlist. The CUT Terrace will provide guests with a taste of Europe that offers international cuisine and serves as a new neighbourhood rendezvous with unmatched hospitality.

Chef Wolfgang Puck seeks to deliver dining concepts that make guests feel at home. The CUT Terrace delivers on his vision, with a curated menu and special ambiance that is both familiar and transporting.

“I strive to transform the expected into something entirely new, and the CUT Terrace is no exception,” says Wolfgang Puck. “I want my guests to come here to relax, take in the view, listen to great music, enjoy great food, and experience exceptional hospitality.”

The outdoor terrace, designed by Kimberly Brown Architecture PLLC (“KBA”), a women-owned global architecture firm, is luxurious and modern in its appeal. The plush velvety banquettes, imported from Italy, are custom-made to compliment the burgundy awnings. Lush planters and tall privacy hedges add natural elements to the space. The crescent-shaped tables provide all diners with an opportunity to watch the world go by without sacrificing space, bringing a special joie de vivre to downtown New York City.

“Our work on the new terrace at CUT elevates the outdoor New York dining experience by bringing the Jacques Garcia-designed interior onto the streets of TriBeCa. Creating this unique space was a collaborative effort with KBA, Alvise Orinsini (formerly of Jacques García) and Four Seasons Design Team led by Amy Feathergill. It’s a space unlike any other that you’ll find in New York City,” says Kimberly Brown Architecture PLLC’s founder Kimberly Brown.  

CUT by Wolfgang Puck resides on the lobby level of Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, lower Manhattan’s luxury lifestyle destination, offering guests unparalleled service and amenities. The CUT Terrace rounds out the property’s most recent guest offerings including immersive local experiences such as Bike the City and Picnic in the Park.

 “We are extremely excited about CUT’s expansion plans. The addition of an outdoor terrace at the Hotel’s front entrance will allow us to offer an upscale dining option to our guests, who have come to expect nothing but the best from us,” says Thomas Carreras, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. “At Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, we are committed to celebrating the art of living. We enjoy creating incredible experiences that enhance our guest’s daily lives that will ultimately become everlasting memories. The CUT Terrace will offer a little taste of European flair, while also being the quintessential New York City experience.”
