16 Argyle Street, The Rocks; (02) 9259 5695 cutbarandgrill.com Open Monday-Friday for lunch and seven days for dinner Now part of the Rockpool Dining Group, The Cut bar and grill has proved to be a cut above the notion of laid-back steakhouse. Housed in a heritage block in The Rocks, the space is dominated by exposed brick, huge wooden pillars and rafters, and chairs upholstered in cowskin and leather. There’s a bevy of brilliant bovine to choose from – the pure Black Angus from the Rangers
Valley, say, or F1 6+ fillet from the Darling Downs. Of course, if you want to splash out, the David Blackmore full-blood Wagyu rump with a 9+ marble score will leave you stunned at its rich splendour.
