Justin Sutherland returns to Lowertown St. Paul with a new kind of steakhouse


Celebrity chef Justin Sutherland will once again oversee a restaurant in the Lowertown neighborhood of St. Paul. Noyes and Cutler, a new American steakhouse, will open in June at 229 E. 6th St., in the former Public Bar and Kitchen. Sutherland’s collaborating chef, Aaron Cave, will lead the kitchen.

The gorgeous room overlooking Mears Park will set the stage for a modernized steakhouse menu with dishes like beef tartare, fatty crab cake brimming with chunks of crabmeat, French onion soup and beef steaks. locally sourced Market House Meats. Seafood will come from The Fish Guys.

General Manager Jorge Robertson, who worked with Cave at The Gnome and previously worked at The Lexington, will oversee hospitality. Robertson has concocted a cocktail menu that will update the classics while paying homage to the historic district.

Plans are also underway to relaunch the underground Green Lantern cocktail parties, located below the restaurant, where there will be cocktails and possibly live music.

The restaurant and bars are all owned by Madison Restaurant Group, which also operates Ox Cart Ale House, Ox Cart Ale House Rooftop – which just reopened for the season – Eagle Street Grille and Gray Duck Tavern.

Sutherland, who rose to national fame on TV shows like “Iron Chef,” “Top Chef,” “Fast Foodies” and the online series “Taste the Culture,” launched his first restaurant, Handsome Hog, just in down the hall from Noyes and Cutler. Handsome Hog moved to the Cathedral Hill area in 2020.

In addition to all those big plans, Sutherland also announced this weekend that he’s written his first cookbook, “Northern Soul: Southern-Inspired Home Cooking from a Northern Kitchen” (Harvard Common Press, $30). The book is slated for release in September but is available for pre-order now.
