Loews Hotels just opened the best steakhouse in Arlington. You should eat there.

You don’t have to be a free-spending carnivore to be impressed with the new Cut & Bourbon steakhouse at Loews Hotels’ new Arlington entertainment and hospitality destination project, Live by Loews.

The tall-ceiling space has the high-fashioned look of an expense account restaurant — stainless steel, marble, wood plank floors, soft overhead lighting and comfortable chairs. The service staff are veterans who know hospitality, even if they and chef Mark Guatalar, who used to work the kitchen at Asador in Dallas, are still working out the details.

The menu in this 90-seat restaurant is straight from the Loews playbook (Guatalara revealed that two other Loews hotels, in St. Louis and Orlando, serve the same core menu). Guatalar is slowly putting his own spin on the place, adding more locally sourced seasonal ingredients and Texas-raised beef. Soon, he says, you’ll spot three house-made sausages, some new flatbreads and a few vegan dishes on the menu. For now, though, the center of the plates here star wet-aged Creekstone steaks and a single dry-aged ribeye.

The prices are reasonable by steakhouse standards (check out the menu above). On Cowboys home game days, prices get surprisingly more affordable; the restaurant runs a “reverse happy hour” with a lavish $29 after-the-game buffet from 10:30 p.m. until 1 a.m. Guatalara says he’ll soon implement a weekend brunch as well.

If you find yourself wanting an upscale dining experience near AT&T Stadium, put Cut & Bourbon on your list; whether tucking into a prime cut at the restaurant or sipping whiskey at the “bourbon” half of Cut & Bourbon, this place is a great reason to visit the glam 14-story, 300-room Loews hotel and the adjacent entertainment complex.
