OWNER OF RESERVE CUT
High-end kosher steakhouse.
In 1999, a very young Albert Allaham moved to New York from Damascus. He was just 12 years of age. Following high school, Albert became a full-time butcher, working countless hours to learn the family’s expert techniques. Being a descendant of a long line of expert butchers dating back to more than 200 years to Damascus, Syria, this was more than just work, it was his true passion. In fact, his family ran one of the most respected butcher shops in the country.
He continued to hone his craft, becoming a master butcher and the owner of the very popular, Brooklyn high-end meat market – The Prime Cut, which serves top quality meats to customers throughout the New York area. Driven and dedicated to bring his customers only the finest quality in kosher meats, the savvy entrepreneur then extended his knowledge and expertise of fine cuts to fine dining, creating Reserve Cut, the contemporary kosher restaurant at The Setai Wall Street in the Financial District. His goal: to redefine the kosher dining landscape and encourage non-kosher guests to try its superior cuisine.
