  1. Wow, sounds great. Thanks for the report. (A perfect choice for those with an expense account!)

    The cocktails may be the most expensive I've seen--must have been "Kobe" vodka (tee hee).

      My stepmom told me a friend of hers went to Cut with one other person and between the two of them they had 2 glasses of wine and one cocktail and EACH drink was $36 or so. I was incredulous so she called her friend to confirm and it was confirmed. $36 per. At least that was the price on the wine. The two glasses of wine and one cocktail were over $100 total. My stepmom thinks that's expensive enough to keep her and my dad away, but I'm not daunted - although we'll save up for awhile and then watch what we drink.

            1. The restaurant sounds really lush.

              This is a non-partisan comment, but given the richness of the food described and the number of heart attacks vice-President Cheney has had, my arteries are crying "No!" even as my tongue screams "Yes Please!". Truly, food to die for.
