USTA, LDV Hospitality and American Cut are upping the ante on courtside bites.
American Cut's Tribeca Special: Flank roast with peppercorn cream sauce
The food court at this year’s U.S. Open tennis tournament is now a whole lot more interesting. To help celebrate the event's 50th anniversary, the United States Tennis Association has partnered with LDV Hospitality’s American Cut and chef Marc Forgione to deliver a carnivorous pop-up called Champions by American Cut. Located within Arthur Ashe Stadium at the club level between Gates 3 and 4, the restaurant’s menu will feature brand classics such as the OG 1942 Hotel Caesar, the chili lobster and the 40-ounce porterhouse steak, as well as signature cocktails and desserts, plus new dishes created specifically for this venue. In addition to charming the palates of tennis enthusiasts, there is a lot at stake for LDV Hospitality founder and president John Meadow. “We view the U.S. Open as the quintessential New York fall kickoff social event, and are thrilled to showcase American Cut as the signature steakhouse for this exciting 50th-anniversary year of the Open,” says the man behind such hospitality hits as Scarpetta and The Seville. Courtside box and luxury suite ticket holders are guaranteed access; however, lodge- and promenade-bound fans must purchase passes to access American Cut.
