A much-anticipated addition to the Saucon Valley area restaurant scene is now open for business.
Paxos Restaurants’ Top Cut Steakhouse opened at The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley–atop another well-known Paxos eatery, Melt–on Thursday, according to an email announcement and Facebook post.
The restaurant was announced following the closure of the former Shula’s steakhouse at the Promenade Shops, which went out of business after its owner relocated it to center city Allentown.
Reservations are now being accepted at Top Cut, which boasts expansive views of the Center Valley area, according to photos posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
Dinner reservations can be made online or by calling 610-841-7100.
The restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday. Tuesday through Thursday it is open from 4:30 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday it is open from 4:30 to 11 p.m. Valet parking is available.
On its menu are classic raw bar specialties such as Oysters on the Half Shell ($17), Jumbo U-8 Shrimp Cocktail ($18) and Fruits de Mer ($58); starters such as Oysters Rockefeller ($16.50), Clams Casino Royal ($15) and Escargots ($12); soups and salads, including Crab Bisque ($10) and Grilled Caesar Salad ($9.50); entrees such as King Salmon ($42), Colorado Lamb Chops ($46.50) and Dover Sole ($45); and desserts including Salted Caramel Creme Brulee ($9) and Grand Marnier Souffle ($12).
Of course, the unabashed star of the menu is high quality beef.
According to the menu’s steak section, “at Top Cut, we exclusively present the highest quality USDA PRIME grade steaks. We only serve 100 percent pure bred Black Angus, corn-fed and raised in the heart of the Midwest (beef). All cuts are hand selected by our specialty butcher in Chicago, assuring that every steak offers superior marbling and flavor.”

In essence, the steakhouse is “1940s tradition with today’s perfection,” according to the email from Paxos Restaurants.
