Nestled along the cobblestone streets in Tribeca is American Cut, better known as the best steakhouse in NYC. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the hostess, you’ll be swept away by the nostalgic glamor of the restaurant–dark walls, flickering candlelight, deep leather booths, and art deco inspired moody lighting. It’s a place to dine, but also a place to connect. Whether you’re hosting a special dinner among friends, grabbing an old fashioned cocktail with a coworker, or dining out with your sensational better half, American Cut fits the bill.

Luxury Living at Tribeca Bridge Tower

Schedule a tour today of Tribeca Bridge Tower's luxury Downtown Manhattan apartments.

To Start

In typical steakhouse fashion, portions here aren’t shy, so feel free to order a variety of appetizers for the table to share. Highlights are the Kampachi Tartare, finished with avocado, radish, and pine nuts ($18) as a cold starter, and a heaping plate of the OG 1924 Hotel Caesar Salad, topped with parmigiano reggiano, soft egg, and pullman croutons ($16)–hands down the tastiest Caesar salad I’ve ever had. For a hot dish, consider the Seared Foie Gras, complimented with bread, salt, and fruit ($23.)

The Main

It goes without saying that the main event at American Cut is, without pause, the steak. But so many options where this is concerned! You have the Wet Aged (hanger, NY Strip, filet mignon) and the Dry Aged (NY City Cut, Surf and Turf, Tomahawk)–ranging in price from $32 to $175. Again, consider sharing the larger cuts to avoid “eyes are bigger than my stomach syndrome!” For vegetarians (who are taking one for the team and eating at a steakhouse!), we suggest going with the cauliflower steak–it’s off the menu and made to order, but every bit as moist and savory as you would imagine! Outstanding sides include the Twice Baked Potato with truffle and cheddar, as well as the Sunchoked Spinach, completed with fontina and smoked salt ($12).

Explore Downtown Manhattan

As every New Yorker will say, everything awaits Downtown - including your next luxury apartment from Glenwood.


Not that you’re going to have much room left in your belly, but that’s exactly why they made the dessert in smaller portions, so feel free to indulge! Standouts on the sweet front are the Crackerjack Sundae (hello, popcorn ice cream! it’s a sweet and savory dream!), as well as the Donuts, filled with bing cherry jam and topped with vanilla bean sugar…with a bit of white chocolate ice cream on the side for good measure ($12).
