In the lavish setting of the Habtoor Palace hotel, this award-winning American-inspired steakhouse attracts a clientele of gourmands from around the world. The dark wood and leather upholstered furniture create an atmosphere of luxury old-school glamour, and the dim low-level lighting lends to the warm and welcoming ambience.
Take a perch at the marble bar and begin with a glass of fizz from the restaurant’s impressive list of Champagnes and Sparkling Wines, or choose from one of the American-inspired cocktails such as the Hemingway Daiquiri; a combination of Barcardi Superior with Maraschino liqueur, pink grapefruit and lime. The restaurant prides itself on an eclectic and extensive wine list featuring Old and New World labels from well-renowned producers through to small boutique wineries. The friendly and passionate sommelier team will be on hand to offer any suggestions for drinking alone or to accompany your menu choices.
From the kitchen, Executive Sous Chef Diego Solis churns out a menu of premium meat and seafood dishes. To start diners can choose from a selection of appetisers, soups and salads. From the raw bar a Yellowfin tuna tartare comes served with an avocado, spicy radish and ginger marinade, and the Wagyu beef carpaccio is accompanied by a fiery wasabi aioli and sourdough crisp. Black truffle fritters and crispy baby calamari are sure to be crowd-pleasers and we love the sound of the seared Hokkaido scallop with fennel foam and Sturia caviar for a more luxurious entrée.
True to its name, World Cut Steakhouse serves a range of top-quality beef cuts from around the world, all with the option to add salmon, prawns or lobster for that classic surf n’ turf combo. Catering for all budgets the grill choices range from Argentinian grass-fed tenderloin through to a Japanese Kagoshima sirloin or Australian Black Onyx tomahawk. The steaks can all be served with a range of different sauces and a tempting assortment of sides including a potato gratin with comté cheese, sautéed forest mushrooms with chilli and tarragon and an extra decadent truffle macaroni & cheese.
If steak is not your bag then fear not – the restaurant also serves a number of other tempting main courses including a black cod dish with miso glaze and mushrooms; grilled chicken roulade with foie gras and mashed potato; and Tartuffe mushroom risotto with lashings of parmesan.
