D.C. Rosewood opens new dining venues, reimagines public spaces

Rosewood Washington, D.C., located in Georgetown, reopened to reveal dining concepts by Wolfgang Puck, including CUT D.C. and the rooftop lounge, Cut Above. The property also redesigned its public spaces, including the lobby and library.

Cut D.C., helmed by executive chef Andrew Skala, was designed by French architect, interior designer and landscape artist Jacques Garcia. The venue combines elements of American architecture with those of European interiors.

Elements of the property’s exterior architecture, such as brick and metal, are brought inside the restaurant and contrasted with custom furnishings dressed in velvets and silks in hues of teal blue and bronze. The décor is sourced from artisans around the world.

Complementing Cut D.C.’s menu, the property’s new bar has an extensive cocktail and wine list that celebrates the Mid-Atlantic region with offerings from several local vineyards and distilleries.

An expansive, open space, the bar area has a bottle display as its focal point, boasting 2,500 bottles from around the world, complemented by a seafood glass counter that showcases delicacies from the Chesapeake Bay and other local providers. Walls backlit with teal painted glass are juxtaposed with French Versailles parquet floors and silk draperies. The property has a 14-seat private dining room situated on the floor below.

Meanwhile, set against the capital city’s skyline, the hotel’s new rooftop bar and lounge, Cut Above, offers al fresco entertaining. The open-air space is outfitted with modern lounge furniture.

Rosewood Washington, D.C.’s new public spaces similarly include a reimagined lobby and library, designed by Jacques Garcia. Design and architectural details include wood paneling, antique mirrors and marble fireplaces, lining the lobby and its corridors to evoke the environment of a private home. The signature residential style is further reflected in the library, where a double height ceiling, deep velvet sofas and armchairs and a chandelier invite guests to visit with friends or relax.

In addition to the new dining venues, lobby and library, Rosewood Washington, D.C. is set to debut six new townhouse suites later this year. Built at the turn of the century and situated along one of Georgetown’s tree-lined streets, the accommodations will offer an entirely residential guest experience. Each measuring approximately 1,100 square feet in size, the accommodations will be designed by local interior designer Thomas Pheasant and will have private entrances, dedicated living spaces, kitchens and a private back courtyard, in addition to custom furnishings and décor created by artisans and photographers from the surrounding metropolitan area.
