Interior Design

Chef Marc Forgione brings his culinary prowess to Revel in Atlantic City with American Cut. This 9,000 square-foot, 264-seat premium steakhouse offers stunning views from a grand space that features elements of streamlined, art-deco design and hues of blue and dark-stained millwork. Upon entering, guests are greeted by a host as well as a substantial eagle sculpture, which clasps an engraved cleaver in its beak. The bar and raw bar are located along the curving, glass wall of the oceanfront building. Dramatic, dark-stained millwork showcases the bar offerings while tempering sunlight from the windows and providing contrast to the glow of the glass-topped bar itself, which is finished with honey-toned wood rods. Leather-wrapped columns invite guests into the main dining room, where a 60-foot art-deco lighting installation casts a warm glow across the expansive space, bookended by the action of both the kitchen and the bar. A mix of booths, tufted leather banquettes, and loose tables with glossy wood and metal tops are arranged over the herringbone wood floor, occasionally framed by inset carpets. Custom antique brass pendants, floor lamps, and table lamps peppered throughout the space act as metallic highlights amidst masculine and edgy tones.
