Atlanta Journal-Constitution food editor Ligaya Figueras reviews American Cut, the Buckhead steakhouse from LDV Hospitality. Figueras dishes out a “good” rating of one out of four stars and says most of the meats don’t stand out.

The American Cut signature item that did impress was the 40-ounce Tomahawk Chop for two ($115). Gorgeously plated and executed to order (medium rare), this 30-day, dry-aged steak was juicy, tender and deeply flavorful. ... Among other proteins, pork chops were burnt to a black char and branzino fillets were soured by a bracing amount of acid. ... if American Cut wants to compete as a steakhouse in Atlanta, it’s got to get the meat and potato thing down. Otherwise, it risks being merely a swanky bar to grab a drink before or after a dinner eaten elsewhere.

THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: The AJC’s Wyatt Williams is impressed with the beverages and Korean barbecue at Char in Inman Park. Atlanta Magazine’s Jennifer Zyman recommends a trip to Alpharetta’s El Trompo Taqueria for tacos al pastor. Creative Loafing’s Sucheta Rawal likes the Indian-modern American mashup at Amara in Inman Park. Friday Date Night recommends the namesake dish at The Peach & The Porkchop. Fried Chicken Lips says Roswell’s Little Alley Steak is worth a visit every once in a while. Hot Dish Review says diners should avoid customization and stick to the original at H&F Burger in Ponce City Market.
